SK4635 : Risley Church & War Memorial

taken 13 years ago, near to Risley, Derbyshire, Great Britain

Risley Church & War Memorial
Risley Church & War Memorial
All Saints Church was built by the Willoughby family (1350) who also founded a free school. Apparently it is rarity in that it belongs to a period when most churches were being pulled down rather than being built. The War Memorial that stands by the gates to the church obviously dates from the 20th century. Risley is a long thin village with most properties lying either side of the main road. With the Village Hall standing one side of the church and the school on the other, I suppose this is the closest you can get to the village "centre".
