12th century Norman church, built with stones from Hadrian’s Wall and where King Edward I (Longshanks) lay in state in the church for ten days in 1307.
St Andrews church is on the edge of the Lake District. It is part of the Sacred Solway Churches Trail, where a group of unique churches can be discovered.
They were built from stone from Hadrians wall following the Norman conquest (1098 -1190). It is a simple, yet beautiful village church which has been at the heart of worship in Aikton parish for most of the last 1000 years. It is an architectural gem set in outstanding countryside.
