Two more images of the floodlit Church at Ecclesfield. Referred to in the the Doomsday Book as Egglesfeld or ‘church in a field’ it is believed that a church or place of worship stood on the site for many years before the Norman Conquest of 1066. Known as the ‘Minster of the Moors’ the parish boundaries were first marked out during the Anglo Saxon period and Ecclesfield was the mother church of West Riding moorland parish covering around 50,000 acres from Bradfield to the county boundaries. As late as the 1840’s St Marys was still the parish church for Wadsley, Grenoside, High Green, Chapeltown, Shiregreen, Wincobank, Southey and Parson Cross. St Marys Church Ecclesfield is a Grade I listed building and traces of the Norman church can be found in the interior of the present building.
