Our three villages, Longdon, Longdon Green and Upper Longdon, share the church of St. James which also serves part of Gentleshaw. Like so many of the farming villages in the area, Longdon and its church have ancient roots. The well drained sandy soil on these gently rolling hills at the southern end of the Pennines has been used for generations to grow crops and to rear animals.
The villages share the one church and one church school, but have a pub each. The church has been a constant focus of village life for countless generations. The Vicar and the PCC strive to maintain the church as an ecumenical place of worship, and to hand it in good order to following generations. We count ourselves fortunate to have congregation members from Roman Catholic, Methodist and other non-conformist traditions as well as Church of England members.
Take a look in the church building and read the guide boards. Look at the history pages in this web site. Above all, do come and see us, talk to us, worship with us. You will be most welcome.
The church is set back from the A51, just south of the village of Longdon. The lych gate is clearly visible from the road, just beyond a small car parking area.
