The ancient picturesque parish of Dacre in the north of the Lake District National Park in NW England has had a church on this site for over a thousand years. In the church two shafts of ancient crosses survive, one of which is pre-Viking. It is said that they illustrate Adam & Eve and the sacrifice of Isaac.
The stone on the floor belongs to the 10th century Viking period and may have been a grave monument, for the four panels depict the symbolic triumph of good over evil. There are several monuments to the Hasell family who have lived at nearby Dalemain since 1665. There a number of stained glass windows well worth looking at. Source Visit Cumbria
