    St Paul’s Church was erected in 1846, midway between the two communities of Denholme and Denholme Clough. The building was paid for by Messrs Eli and Benjamin Foster and Mr Jonathan Knowles. Up until 1846 the Anglican churchgoers had to travel to Thornton every Sunday. St Paul’s, the ‘Minster on the hill’ was used for worship until June 1997, when extensive dry rot was discovered in the structure and for safety reasons it had to be closed. The final ‘Farewell’ service was held on 5th September 1999 in the new graveyard, which is still open for interments.

    This Church is a 5 minute drive from us so we decided to check it out. We visited the graveyard a few years back and it was all boarded up but we weren't attempting to get inside. At the moment entry is pretty easy.

    Inside it's pretty trashed unfortunately but the original structure is pretty impressive and there are a few remaining items from the original use (pews, furniture, magazines). Its definitely worth a look if you are nearby.
