The old church of the parish of Annesley served the settlements of Annesley and Felley, but gradually became derelict. A new church, All Saints, was built in 1874 ,incorporating some of the building material from the old church, including the woodern porch and Norman font. Annesley is a pretty village, six-and-a-half miles south-west of Mansfield. It is noted (as Aneslei) in the Domesday book as a settlement worth 40 shillings. The manor was granted by William the Conqueror to a Norman, Ralph Fitz-Hubert, and the Fitz-Hubert family held the manor until 1154.
