Parish Church of St Mary, Newton Solney

Churchwarden: Brenda Goring, Peel Cottage, Newton Lane. 701129


The aptly named Lane that leads up to St Mary’s Church is in a terrible condition. It has not been good for many years and despite requests from the Parish Council to the Highways Dept. at Derbyshire County Council Highways Department very little has been done. As it is used by a large number of people, from the youngsters at the Pre-and Infants Schools to those who are not so steady on their feet these days, there is a huge risk of someone breaking their ankle, leg or worse. As Vicar I have written to South Derbyshire and County Councillors as well as our MP about this. If others care to add their weight by contacting them as well, together we might get something done.


We are very pleased to say that St Mary’s in Newton Solney is open for private prayer.

St Mary’s will be open everyday from 10.00am – 4.00pm.

St Saviour’s, Foremark will remain closed at this time.
