We have recently discovered that as a church we have historic links to slavery and that a former rector (Robert White Almond) owned plantations in Jamaica which held enslaved people. He was also compensated when slavery was abolished. The video and Leaflet will explain more.
A new memorial in the church remembers the lives of the 220 enslaved people who are all named on the memorial. A plaque gifted from Gloria Daniel from TTeach Plaques has been placed alongside one page of the original slave register. It is accompanied by shackles.
