Church of St. John
Built in 1874, St John’s Church was founded to provide a more local church for the rapidly growing communities of Moor Row, Bigrigg, Woodend and Scalegill as the iron mining industry changed agricultural hamlets into small industrial residential villages. Built midway between the hamlets, on a site donated by the landowner of the adjoining estate, Jeffersons of Springfield, it is a solidly built sandstone structure, sufficiently well-designed and constructed as to be a Grade II National Heritage classified building.
St. Marys and St. Michaels CoE
Victorian Gothic in local red sandstone. Grade 2 Listed. A fine church tower with bells and chiming tower clock. On the original site of two chapels/churches of St Mary and St Michael – demolished then rebuilt 1884. Stands in own church grounds at centre of town just behind the main street.
Methodist (meeting place)
Egremont Methodist Church recently undertook a major renovation scheme. The Church has occupied its current premises since 1876, and has played an important role in community life since that time. This role has evolved over the years with the needs of the community, and the time had come when our buildings were no longer meeting their potential in supporting our aim of serving the people of Egremont and the surrounding area. After much consultation, it was decided that the best way to use our resources in continuing support of the community was to convert the premises into a multi-purpose community facility.
