St John, Alkmonton

Welcome to St. John's Church Alkmonton. Built in 1843 for William Evans Esq, Banker and Industrialist of Darley Abbey.

St. John's is a Grade ll Listed Building originally a Chapel of Ease for Longford, incorporating the Liberty of Hungry Bentley.

Our lovely pebble-dash Church sits peacefully alongside the quaint village of Alkmonton, that also has Medieval History. The Font in our Church is believed to be Norman and was found in the 19th Century in a nearby field from the old deserted village.

We have an ongoing History Group displaying various local History, Topics and Stories in Church for anyone to look at and enjoy.
