St Margaret's Tower

                 St. Margarets Tower                   

Until 150 years ago the Parish Church of Staveley was St. Margaret's, now all that remains is the clock tower. It stands in the centre of Staveley in our open churchyard. The Churchyard is maintained by volunteers who gather on a Wednesday morning, in all weathers!

You can read about the history of St. Margaret's and St. James' in our history leaflet.


Our clock is rare, fully mechanical and is regularly wound by hand. Unfortunately it is currently in need of some urgent work to restore it to full working condition.

If you like to support the clock repair fund you can give online here , you can send a cheque, made payable to PCC of St James' Staveley, to the vicarage (address below) or place a donation in the collecting box in the Beehive (Post Office). If donations exceed the cost of the work they will be held in a designated fund, within the church accounts, and used exclusively for St. Margaret's Tower and Churchyard.
