Walk ch235 Newchurch Common from Whitegate

Woodland, Farmland & a dismantled railway

A chapel has stood on the site of the St Mary's church in Whitegate since 1277. There are records of repairs between 1602 & 1646 but by 1715 the church was a ruined wood and plaster structure. Around 1728 the church was rebuilt in brick and enlarged & in 1874–75 the church exterior was remodelled to its present form.
