Bill Bryson and Cartmel Priory

Bill Bryson and Cartmel Priory

Best-selling author – Bill Bryson has placed Cartmel Priory on his list of favourite churches.

Mr Bryson said “I came across this ancient and memorable priory by accident years ago when I was exploring the Lake District. 

Cartmel is a lovely village, so it and its church were both delightful surprises and I have returned several times since.

Furthermore, the church dominates the village and is notable for its unusual diagonal belfry tower which gives it a jaunty air”

A special page on ‘ExploreChurches’ featuring Mr Bryson’s favourite churches will start the English Tourism week.
