The former St. Stephen (1920's) at Holden Wood is now an antiques centre. It is the successor to a Mission Church on a different site nearby. SD 774 226. © Philip Kapp. This link has a little history. Thanks to Janet Gimber for the identification. Janet suspects from the wording on the link, and additional map research, that the church was physically moved from another site. The inhabitants (and church) appear to have been moved to allow the building of a reservoir.
