Getting there:

The church is east of the A595 just south of the centre of Whitehaven.
From the north: Turn left off the A595, signed for Cleator Moor B5295, at traffic lights after the road (A5094) from Whitehaven town centre joins from the right. Fork right at Hensingham Square onto the Egremont Road, the church is about ¼ mile on your right.
From the South: Arriving at the outskirts of Whitehaven on the A595 continue north until you reach a roundabout.  Take the second exit (B5295), marked Hensingham; the church is about half a  mile up the road on your left.


Plenty of space in church grounds. Follow one-way system within grounds .


Enter the church through the doors between the hall and the church on the north side of the building. Go into the church through the doors on the left and turn immediately left. Walk the full length of the church  and into the ground floor of the tower. The spiral staircase to the ringing room is through the low doorway on the left. Mind your head as you reach the top.


In church hall adjoining church.
