The local area was always known as “The Common”. We’ve gathered stories and photos from people round about to piece together its story. In the past there was coal mining, poaching, hunting and a copper works. Come and find out more – or maybe you’ll have something to add!
In 1947 St Peter’s bells were brought to the church by lorry in a procession from the station. They were paid for by public subscription: did one of your relatives contribute? We’ll have the subscribers’ book on display. Come along, meet the ringers and find out more about the bells and how they are rung. The bells will be rung at regular intervals during the afternoon.
Gardens for Everyone
We are working on opening up the land around the church to the community. We already have crops growing on the old school playground behind the church. Now we have plans to turn the open land next to Barber Street into a community garden. Come along, look at the plans and add your comments and ideas.
