St Giles's Church, Great Longstone (NE View)

Recent Photograph of St Giles's Church (NE View) (Great Longstone)

In the days when Longstone parish included the hamlets of Hassop and Rowland, parishioners attending church would have approached the church from this direction, passing through a ‘squeezer’ stile in the north-east corner of the churchyard. The north-east corner also was traditionally where they would have been laid to rest.
