Whilst visiting my wife’s parents for Boxing Day celebrations, I decided to go out and about in the local villages near to where they live in South Yorkshire. I came to the village of Hickleton as the snow was still lying there in the church yard of St. Wilfred’s Church with very little disturbance. This is a wonderful old church which dates back to the 16th century. The church has Norman designs and is believed to have been begun in the 12th century, although much of today’s building is 15th century. It was a daughter church of Barnburgh and once belonged to the Cluniac Priory of Monk Breton, the second largest monastery in South Yorkshire. The village of Hickleton was connected to limestone mining and the nearby village of Thurnscoe.
