Old Village with ‘Modern’ Church

There are many quirks of fate in Unstone’s history.  One being that for such an ancient village – (mentioned twice in the Domesday survey of 1086 and with a Jacobean Manor), it has a 20th Century church.  Another is that we have a Church Street but the church of St Mary is and always was from its outset very firmly situated on Crow Lane.  It is such a shame that St Mary’s wasn’t built with its proposed tower.  Maybe if it had been, Crow Lane would have been renamed Church Street.
