Cemeteries

We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1920, and we understand it is still open.

Newton's Church Hall is mentioned under the entry for Blackwell in Kelly's Directory of 1932 as erected in 1920, and re-erected in 1930. Its position is shown on Old Maps from 1938, opposite the triangle formed by Main Street, Littlemoor Lane, and Hall Lane, in the centre of which is the village War Memorial.

It was purchased from the Church by Blackwell parish council, and - following renovation - was reopened in 1994 as the Newton Community Centre.

This information was compiled with the assistance of the 'Historical Timeline' helpfully included in the Wikipedia article on Newton, Derbyshire, which also includes a photograph of the War Memorial and Community Centre in 2010 (the War Memorial can be seen on the larger version of the photograph).

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Newton, Blackwell, Alfreton, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
