Geocache Description:

Here you will find my 51st Church Micro. 

Your looking for a Specially made cache

In my everyday job I was invited along to look at a job and made the most by asking to have a look around so hence the internal photo's.



The Church of England parish church of St Hugh was built in 1908 by W.D. Caroe, on the initiative of the Rev. Menzies Lambrick, from the former welfare hall for the lead miners. It is a Grade II* listed building. A cross in the churchyard and the churchyard wall are also listed buildings.

So on to the church description
