Annesley Woodhouse - St Johns Church
Annesley Woodhouse - St Johns Church
This is, more accurately, the Church of St John the Evangelist, Kirkby Woodhouse. St. John's was built as a daughter church to St. Wilfrid's Church, Kirkby-in-Ashfield. The present building was constructed in 1906 on Skegby Road. The land was donated by the sixth Duke of Portland and the church cost 10,000. The plans for a tower were never realised.

Interestingly, the mother church, St Wilfrid's Church was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in 1908 by L. Ambler in a neo Early English style, again at the expense of the sixth Duke of Portland.

A further anglican church in the vicinity is Annesley All Saints Church. Like St Wilfrid's, this was badly damaged by fire (in 1907), rebuilt and re-opened in 1909.
