Whixall, St. Mary. As Sandy points out, the old gravestones built into the wall suggest that this is a re-build and he supplies a date of 1869. The listed building text says 1867, perhaps meaning the commencement of building work. Interestingly, the listing text says that the old church, which no longer exists, was a quarter of a mile away, so either the gravestones were moved, or the new church was built on a pre-existing graveyard. Sandy Calder. Grade II listed. Methodist Church at Welsh End, built as Primitive Methodist in 1859.
