History and Architecture:
Bishop Wilson approved the construction of a large church at Colebrook towards the end of 1854. The Government was approached to supply " a few loads of metal" in order "to make good the approaches to the proposed church': This paltry assistance was given. However When asked if more substantial help by allowing timber for the church to be cut in Government land, free of the license fee, the Government said no.
Designed by Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin in 1843. The Church was built between 1855 and 1857.
This list may not contain every serving cleric, past or present, for this church.
