2011|Finsthwaite Church and School

Finsthwaite church was built in 1874 by Paley and Austin, as a 'mountain church'. Unusually the inside is highly decorated with painted plaster work. The school, built at the same time, is now a village hall. The hall still has an open fireplace where peat was used for heating. The school closed in the 1960s.
