Studley Methodist Church
The building, opened in 1873, replaced an earlier church on another site, which was no longer big enough. The building was extended 10 years later to provide an organ, choir stalls and vestry. Built of brick, it has the worship area on the upper floor, reached by a flight of six external stone steps, under a portico with a roof supported on stone pillars. There is a War Memorial plaque to the church members who fell in World War I as well as memorial plaques to prominent Methodist families from the village, including two large stone tablets at the front of the church, containing the 10 Commandments, the Lord's Prayer and a Creed.

- Be prepared to do more project management - the architect will not do it all and must be managed!
