St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church
Now known as Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

This was a Catholic chapel on the Irnham Estate until about 1853 when the estate was sold to Protestants.

Permission was given for the chapel to be relocated. Each stone was numbered by the eight or so stone masons that were brought in to do the work.

It is said that Peter Dawson Cocks helped move over 1,000 of these stones from Irnham to Corby Glen, about 2 1/2 miles.
