Notes and References

  1. According to chapter 9 of The History of Lockwood and North Crosland (1980) by Brian Clarke, there is a long-standing rumour that the architect accidentally mixed up the plans of Lockwood and Netherthong churches, so the real All Saints' Church actually stands in Lockwood!
