St.James' Church, Midhope, South Yorkshire
St.James' Church, Midhope, South Yorkshire, a Grade II listed building. A tiny rugged church, surrounded by a picturesque graveyard. It is built of grey sandstone, with roof tiles of the same material. Foundations were laid around 1360 by the Barmby family, the Lords of the Manor of Midhope (1352 - 1622). They used it as a private chapel until, impoverished by their adherence to the Catholic faith after Reformation, they had to sell the whole manor. During the time of the next owner, a Puritan merchant, a Jacobean pulpit was installed. When Godrey Boswell of Gunthwaite Hall bought the manor for 2256 in 1690 the chapel was falling into disrepair. He restored it in 1705. Until 1847, services were taken by clergy from Bolsterstone, where records were kept. Since then, services have been taken by clergy from Penistone. The church was transferred from Sheffield to Wakefield Diocese in 1914.
