Our Local and Church History page

In 1865 the foundation stone of Holy Rood School Chapel was laid(you can still see this stone in the entrance hall of the present Memorial Hall) so our church has a lot of history and tradition behind it.

As we develop this page we will bring you a wealth of information about the history and features of Holy Rood church.
