4. Appleton-le-Moors Village, fine buildings & Christ Church
Norman village of Apeltun in the Domesday Book
Looking down the one and only street of the village of Appleton-le-Moors which dates from Norman times - a 'planned' post Conquest village.
Appleton Hall, 'The Hall', a substantial Early Victorian Vila, is a very splendid building and private residence, which is nearly opposite Christ Church.
The ex village school by JL Pearson in the 1860's?

At the end of the day call in it at the Moors Inn for a warm welcome.
The current Village Hall, which was originally the village school.
On the side of the house of THREE FACES! - could prove disconcerting after a visit to the Moors Inn.
Christ Church, Appleton-le-Moors was built around 1865 by J. L. Pearson in the 'French Gothic Revival' style of architecture.
Christ Church, Appleton-le-Moors, a fine piece of architecture and well worth a visit.
A lot of work was put into this fine looking building and the interior is quite a surprise for a 'village' church!
The capitals of the piers and the font are intricately and most decoratively carved.
Some of the stained glass windows inserted in the pretty tracery.
Looking down the nave to the chancel and altar in the apse.
Details of chancel and altar.
The stained glass windows of the apse above the altar.
Much of the walls and pulpit are faced with sgraffito by Clayton & Bell who also did the stained glass.
Details of some of the 'classical' sgraffito.
