Full Description

'St John's Church (Iron)' appears here on the 1st edition OS map. It had been demolished by the 2nd edition, and was superseded by a larger building to the south (see SMR 24784). (1-2) To meet increasing demand for church accommodation in Ripley a temporary iron church, dedicated to St John, was opened in 1871. The foundation stone of a permanent edifice was laid in 1893 [see SMR 24784]. (3) St John's district church [SMR 24784], at Green Hillocks, was erected in 1894 to replace the former iron church that was built by the Butterley Company, at a cost of £800. (4) The site is now part of a car park [2011]. (5)
