Church of England Diocese of Lichfield St. James, Salt

Historical note

Hopton Church came about because of the generosity of the Earl of Shrewsbury. Hopton parishioners no longer had to walk the two miles to Salt. Mr J Mousley of Hopton provided a barn, which was converted into a simple chapel. In 1876 the first service was held. The chapel remains virtually the same as it did then, with simple facilities but a strong congregation.
