St John's Church, Hutton Roof

  • Description

    "The church was built in 1880–81. The architects were the Lancaster partnership of Paley and Austin. It replaced an earlier chapel built in 1757. The new church cost £2,500 (£220,000 as of 2014). The foundation stone was laid on 25 June 1880, and the church was consecrated on 9 August 1881. The vicar of the church between 1913 and 1918 was Rev Theodore Bayley Hardy. As chaplain to the British Army, Hardy was the most decorated non-combatant in the First World War, receiving the Victoria Cross, the Distinguished Service Order, and the Military Cross for the assistance he gave to the wounded."
