Hardwick Church

Hardwick is our nearest village and has a 14th century church build from local stone. The unusual queen-post roofs are fifteenth century (queen-posts are vertical wooden posts on either side of the centre). During this period, the chancel arch was rebuilt to make it larger, and a stone stairway was constructed in the north east corner of the nave. There are still remnants of the original wall paintings, painted between 1460 and 1480.
