Eggleston Church (former)
Eggleston Church (former)
This ruined church is in the grounds of Eggleston Hall Gardens. It seems to have been replaced in the mid-1800s by another church (Holy Trinity) further north. There are quite a few old graves. My guess would be that the owner of the hall found that the church was interfering with his landscaping plans, or simply that he did not like the parishioners traipsing to church so close to his house. But that is pure conjecture on my part.
