St Mary's Church, Wreay
St Mary’s church in Wreay, Cumbria was constructed and designed by Sara Losh between 1840 and 1842 and has a rectangular nave and a semicircular apse following the style of Roman basilicas of the early church. Prominent in the churchyard are a mausoleum of Sara Losh's sister, Katherine, and a copy of the Bewcastle Cross.
Bullen reports Dante Gabriel Rossetti's enthusiasm for this church (and Losh's other works in the village) which Rossetti described as "extraordinary architectural works" with "a church of a byzantine style and other things ... full of beauty and imaginative detail, though extremely severe and simple" and "much more original than the things done by the young architects now". The stonemason who carved the designs was William Hindson. A plaque to his memory is displayed in the church.
