St Andrew and Hopper mausoleum near Kiln Pit Hill

  • Description

    "The church stands isolated, and redundant, amid fields. It was rebuilt in 1769 and altered in 1892. Grade II listed. On the left is the imposing mausoleum with its dome, obelisks and open lantern on top (see here for a closer view: There is confusion about the date. The inscription states it was built by Humphrey Hopper in memory of his wife who died in 1752, but the style is more in tune with a Humphrey Hopper recorded in 1663. Grade I listed. All is now cared for by the Churches Conservation Trust. Sadly, despite its remote location, a sign tells us that the church is currently open on Saturdays only due to repeated criminal damage."
