All Three Solway Churches are delighted to welcome school visits either to all three churches, or individually. 


The churches, all built from the stones of Hadrian’s Wall, offer a unique educational resource for both local Schools and schools throughout Cumbria.


Learning materials relating to the stories of all three churches, prepared by qualified teaching staff, are available to be downloaded below.  In addition, at Burgh-by-Sands Church, there are six children’s re-enactment outfits for each of its main stories (Romans, King Edward I, Celtic Saints and Border warfare/Reivers) with accessories (soft swords, helmets, scissors, felt tip pens etc.) for use in conjunction with the learning materials.
