Lowick’s most prominent landmark is the church of St Luke, a gorgeous stone church that was built in 1845 and captures the essence of the building techniques used at the time. Stunning stain glass windows are one of the church''s best features; the prepossessing tower contrasts starkly with the verdant green countryside. The Manor of Lowick is another famous building in the village and was originally owned by the 5th baron of Kendal, passing ownership to Robert de Turribus during Henry II’s reign.
The village has a rich history and many of the buildings that line the tiny streets date back centuries. The now defunct Village Inn dates back to the 1600s and the Red Lion Pub is just as old. In the hamlet of Lowick Green look out for one of the last surviving red phone boxes in rural Britain.
