St Mary'S Whicham, LA18 5LS
St Mary's is a attractive Grade 2 listed church sitting at the foot of Black Combe in the picturesque Whicham Valley.The churchyard is particularly spectacular in spring, when it is filled with snowdrops, crocus and daffodils. It is at the start of a popular path for walkers up Black Combe and the church is illustrated in Wainwright's fellwalking guides (Outlying Fells, p 166)..
The congregation is mainly drawn from the villages of Silecroft and Kirksanton as well as from the farms and houses of the Whicham Valley. The congregation is friendly and welcoming and the services offers a mixture of traditional, family and more modern.
The church is part of the parish of the Black Combe Churches, sharing worship with the churches of St Michael's Bootle, St Mary's Whitbeck and St John's Corney.
