We believe the Church did 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 1906, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

The provenance of this building is uncertain. It has two plaques on the front; one is a carving of the sign of Justice (or 'Libra', the Scales, if you are astrologically inclined), so it was probable a corporate building, rather than a place of worship. The other is an inscribed plaque providing a date of '1906', so its erection predated the Primitive Methodist Chapel erected in 1912 further down the road.

Kelly's Directory of 1912 refers to The Court House and Public Hall, at Hatton, erected in 1906 "at a cost of £600, a structure of red brick with stone facings", which fits its appearance. Apparently Petty Sessions for Hatton's mother parish, Marston on Dove, were held here on the last Thursday of every month, at 10.30 a.m.

At the time of Google StreetCar's drive past it was boarded up, and there appeared to be a tree growing out of the apex of the gable facing Scropton Road!


Now or formerly Community Hall.

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