The Archdeacon of Westmorland and Furness is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Diocese of Carlisle.[1] As such he or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy [2] within its four rural deaneries: Barrow, Windermere, Kendal and Furness.[3]

The archdeaconry of Westmorland was created in 1847 (although no appointment was made until 1856) and that of Furness in 1884. They were subsequently merged to form the current archdeaconry of Westmorland and Furness. The current incumbent is Penny Driver.

Archdeacons of Westmorland and of Westmorland and Furness[edit]

In 1959, Furness archdeaconry was merged into Westmorland archdeaconry and the latter was renamed as "Westmorland and Furness".

Archdeacons of Furness[edit]

The archdeaconry (occasionally called Barrow-in-Furness) was created by Order-in-Council on 27 May 1884.[8]
On 7 August 1959, Furness archdeaconry was dissolved and its territory added to the Westmorland archdeaconry, which was renamed "Westmorland and Furness".[16]
