Heptonstall #3

Heptonstall’s two most famous church sites are the ruins of the 3th century church of St Thomas à Becket and its 19th century replacement, the church of St Thomas the Apostle.

A view of the ruins of the church of St Thomas à Becket, built between 1256 and 1260 AD, it’s West face fell away during a storm in 1847. The church continued in use until 1854 when it was replaced.
