Businesses in Kirkcambeck Towns and Villages of Cumbria


Kirkcambeck St Kentigern Arch of Old Church courtesy Steve BulmanKirkcambeck lies on Cam beck seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Its location north of Brampton made it prey to 13th century Scottish border raiders, who burned the 11th century village church. The arched doorway of the original church survived and stands alone.
The village church of today, St Kentigern, was built in 1885. A timber castle was once here, but only slight earthworks remain.
