Carlisle – St Margaret Mary

Scalegate Road, Carlisle CA2 4JX

A gently modern post-war reinterpretation of early Christian basilican style.

The church was built in 1961 from designs by James Brignell Dand of Carlisle (CBR 1961). It is in a modern version of the early Christian basilican style, red brick, with a pitched slate roof and a rectangular, single-volume nave. The sanctuary is apsidal, its junction with the nave marked by a round- headed arch. The building is lit by windows at clerestory level. There is a circular stained glass window over the narthex. A blocky brick campanile is placed asymmetrically at the east end. The interior is plain, with exposed brick walls in the nave and yellow-and-white painted walls in the sanctuary.
