Set in the heart of Sedbergh in a beautifully maintained churchyard the church, which dates from 1130, is a haven of peace.
Far beyond the boundaries of the Society, it is acknowledged for all the simplicity of its lime washed stone walls and interior woodwork; panelling, columns and balustrading as one of England’s vernacular gems. For many, the peace and tranquillity of the Meeting House at Brigflatts leave a lasting impression.
Three and a quarter centuries after George Fox first visited the hamlet of Brigflatts, it is still the home of a Friends Meeting. It receives more than 2,000 visitors a year from all over the world, many coming to explore the '1652 Country', the birthplace of Quakerism. Visiting groups and individuals regularly join local Friends in worship on Sunday mornings.
