St James  the Apostle Church, Temple Normanton
St James the Apostle Church, Temple Normanton
At least four churches have been built on the site with a story to rival "The Three Little Pigs"...
A pre-Norman church was replaced by a Victorian stone one. However, this suffered the effects of subsidence caused by mining activity at the nearby Grassmoor Collieries and was replaced by a wooden church in 1922. This temporary structure was unable to withstand the strong westerly winds and was replaced in 1986 by the current sturdy structure made of fibreglass!
