An historic church in the south lakes has received almost £100,000 towards the cost of roof repairs.
St Cuthbert's Church in Kentmere, near Kendal, was awarded the money from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund.
The church was founded in the 1400s and has strong connections to St Cuthbert. It homes a yew tree that is said to be 1,000 years old.
The money covers approximately 80% of the funding required for repairs, leaving £20,000 still to raise.
