St Mary’s Worsbrough

Herewith photos taken at Worsbrough during my trip there on Thursday.

John Green MI
Memorial gravestone for my ggggg uncle John Green, a bleacher, and his two wives, both called Mary, plus two children who died in infancy. An old transcript of memorial stones has one for my gggg grandfather Joseph Green but it has since either been removed or become illegible: I’ll go back one day and have a good hunt round to see if there’s any trace of it.

Willliam Green MI
Memorial gravestone for William Green and his family. He is surely related to my Green ancestors but at the moment I’m not sure how.

Inside St Mary's
The inside of St Mary’s church, which is a very fine country church.

1663 Baptismal Font
The baptismal font inside St Mary’s, dating from 1663.

Edmunds Arms
The Edmunds Arms, opposite St Mary’s, which used to be a coaching inn back in the day of the toll roads – Worsbrough was on the road between Sheffield and Barnsley. The original inn building is the part that now has two bow windows.
