This view shows perhaps the most interesting and impressive architectural feature of the Annesley old church: the five-light arched east-window of the south aisle. This part of the church is also known as the Felley Chantry Chapel. Built in 1363, it was richly endowed to support several chaplains who said mass for the souls of the founders of the church. Unfortunately the five-light window has been destroyed and the church is derelict and in ruins. A new church, All Saints was built in 1874 incorporating some of the building material from the old church.
