St John's Church, Corney
Corney is a small, scattered village in Cumberland, in the south-westernmost extent of the Lake District, where the fells approach the Irish Sea. There is no village centre but farms and cottages and dispersed along the lanes. It sits on the lower slopes of Corney Fell. The more dramatic crags of Black Combe rise to the south-east.
The village may be little known, but it name is well known to travellers who take the fell road from Duddon Bridge to Ravenglass, as this route is known as the "Corney Fell Road". From Corney on a clear day it is possible to see the Isle of Man, Snowdonia and Galloway.
There parish church is St John the Baptist. It dates back to as early as the 12th Century, and today stands in a churchyard left wild so that the moorland wildflowers thrive.
