Hillersdon Terrace, Nenthead
Tucked away up the hill, in its steep churchyard, St John’s can be hard to find, but it’s worth the effort. This simple little church, built in 1845 by the London Lead Mining Company to serve the mining community of Nenthead, has a number of interesting features from older churches – including an ancient refectory table as an altar, a medieval communion rail. The War Memorial, listing those who served in the World Wars, is particularly striking. And don’t miss the model village next door!
