Chapelry History

Lowick St Luke was created a chapel of ease in 1743 from, and lying within the boundaries of Ulverston St Mary, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

Other places in the parish include: Bay Fell, Higher Lowick, Upper Lowick, Lowick Common, Lower Subberthwaite, and Lower Lowick.

Lowick is a village in Cumbria (until 1974 in Lancashire). It appears in records as early as 1202 as Lofwik, and later as Laufwik. The name derives from Old Norse "Lauf-vík" (meaning leafy bay).

Lowick is made up of several small hamlets, including Woodgate, Lowick Bridge and Lowick Green. The Green has a red phone box, one of the surviving few in Britain.

"LOWICK, a chapelry,in the parishand union of Ulverston, hundred of Lonsdale north of the Sands, N. division of Lancashire, 5½ miles north from Ulverston. The chapel was originally erected in 1718 , bit rebuilt in 1817 ("the former chapel being ruinous)."[1]
