St Nicholas the New!
St Nicholas the New!
Uphill had a church right on top of the hill, and a place of worship probably since Saxon times. However, a new one was built in the nineteenth century on the lower levels. Sadly the original fell into disuse and partial ruin. However this one still has a roof. Looking closer and it can be seen the newer part of the eastern (to left of shot) end to be made of pennant stone. There used to be an original bolt benchmark in the tower but was covered up. To replace it a fresh one was cut into the new section - see ST3158 : A new benchmark for a new church.
