Description

Jesus Church from the A592

The origin of this church is lost, but it certainly existed in 1506. Instead of the usual dedication to a patron saint, it has the unusual name and it is one of only two churches in England dedicated as Jesus Church. The church was rebuilt in 1736, and a major restoration took place in 1861. Located in the bottom of Troutbeck Valley, where the Browne family went to church. Ben Browne wanted people to think that the Brownes were an important family. He had done well in growing the farm, and he was the High Constable of Kendal which was an important role in the local community. In 1710 he put his own pew in Troutbeck Church. This made the people in the village very angry, so one night they broke into the church, ripped out the pew and burnt it.
