Greystoke

(10 reviews from 1 attraction)
Greystoke is a village and civil parish on the edge of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, England, about 4mi west of Penrith. The village centres on a green surrounded by stone houses and cottages.BuildingsBuildings in the village include St Andrew's parish church, which dates from the 13th century; Greystoke Castle, built by Baron Greystock in the 16th century and which stands in a 3000acre park; the Boot & Shoe public house; and the Cyclists' Cafe.To the east of the village are three folly farmsteads built about 1789 by Charles Howard, 11th Duke of Norfolk, of Greystoke Castle: Fort Putnam, Bunker's Hill and Spire House.St Andrew's ChurchSt Andrew's is a major church building due to its size, which is considerable for such a small parish. It was refounded as a collegiate church in 1382, by William, 14th Baron Greystoke. for a master, seven chaplains and six chantry priests. However the present building, in the Perpendicular style, is reckoned to date from the 16th and 17th centuries. It had a restoration in 1818, and then in 1848-49 it had another restoration under the architect Anthony Salvin. The nave is narrow, but the aisles are wide, with big windows, but it has no clerestory or west window. There are a number of effigies, including William, 14th Baron, and John, 16th Baron. There is an impressive memorial to Henry Charles Howard of Greystoke, in the Arts and Crafts style dating from 1914. There are six bells which are hung for ringing in the English full-circle style.
