Important Monuments Under Threat in Thrybergh
September the 29th, 2009

St Leonards Church in Thrybergh has important monuments which are under threat.  St Leonards is in the older, agricultural part of the village; St Peter's was built after the opening of Silverwood Colliery and that is where most of the activities take place today.  St Leonards is, therefore becoming redundant; that and lead thieves are combining to threaten the Monuments of the Reresby and Fullerton families.
