New Street, Scalford

 

Arthur Mee best describes Scalford as "farmhouses and cottages look up proudly to its church, flaunting its venerable dignity on the brow of the hill. It is the only church in the land dedicated to the obscure 7th century saint Egelwine, brother of Kenwalch, King of the West Saxons".

General Baptist Chapel, Barton in the Beans

 

Built in 1841 on the site of an older chapel, which in turn was established by local clock maker Samuel Deacon and called "The New Connexion". Deacon and his followers were deeply upset by the "careless lifestyle and teaching of the local clergy". They established a separatist movement despite being victimised by rioting mobs from nearby Nailstone.
