Pair charged after fatal stabbing of man in Wishaw
Curdworth has probably had a church since Saxon times, the present Norman structure however dates back to when the Augustinian Canons of the Abbey of St Mary de Pratis were granted the right to present a priest to the parish. The original Norman church with chancel and nave, ended at about two-thirds of the length of the present nave. The earliest doorways, now blocked up, may still be recognised. In the 15 th century the church was lengthened and the tower was added in by the Earl of Warwick, but it was never finished with its intended spire.
The clock in the tower was given in in memory of Robert Minshull Hargrave, who used to live at The Mount. This replaced a clock which was removed in the 18 th century.

Robert Tressell The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists 19th century onwards[ edit ] The most significant exodus followed the worst of a series of potato crop failures in the s – the Irish Potato Famine. It is estimated that more than one million people died and almost the same again emigrated. A further wave of emigration to England also took place between the s, and s by Irish escaping poor economic conditions following the establishment of the Irish Free State.
This was furthered by the severe labour shortage in Britain during the mid th century, which depended largely on Irish immigrants to work in the areas of construction and domestic labour. The extent of the Irish contribution to Britain’s construction industry in the 20th century may be gauged from Sir William MacAlpine’s assertion that the contribution of the Irish to the success of his industry had been ‘immeasurable’. Ireland’s population fell from more than 8 million to just 6.
A century later it had dropped to 4. By the late 19th century, emigration was heaviest from Ireland’s most rural southern and western counties. Some of this movement was temporary, made up of seasonal harvest labourers working in Britain and returning home for winter and spring. By the mid s, Great Britain was the choice of many who had to leave Ireland.
Britain’s wartime economy —45 and post-war boom attracted many Irish people to expanding cities and towns such as London , Liverpool , Manchester , Birmingham , Glasgow and Luton.
