@sandrine2016 - definitely Dickensian and, had the great man known, I am sure would have inspired him to write another novel based on fact.

@rosesroses - oh yes ! This church is very integrated into the local community and much respected, even though it is very small. During the recent Tour de Yorkshire cycle race (which passed on a Sunday afternoon) the church opened its doors to all and served tea and cake to people watching the race. This was excellent outreach to the wider community.

I just hope this beatiful edifice is still true to the Word.

Oh wow. Thanks for that interesting tale. It sounds like something out of a Charles Dickens novel.

@sandrine2016 - yes. I think the origins are lost in time but it is too far from the sea to be connected to whale blubber. The local mill owner 'imported' young orphans from London and set them at work in his mill. The rumour is that the children would cry (or blubber) loudly in their dormitories and hence the name. Whether this is true or not I have no idea.

Very interesting name for a village. :-)
