Kelham Church sits beside the River Trent behind Kelham Hall a short distance from Newark-on-Trent. Until recently the Hall was owned by Newark and Sherwood District Council, but it has recently been sold to a private owner.
The Church has a medieval foundation, but very little from that period has survived today. It is said that marks in the door were made by Cromwell’s Roundheads firing muskets in the Civil War.
Most of the Church, however, is of 18th Century origin when the Church was largely rebuilt. Kelham Hall is mostly 19th Century and was occupied for some time by the monks of the Society of the Sacred Mission and they added the Dome in the 1920s as their chapel. The Society moved out in 1972.Today, the Church is a bit forgotten, although still used for worship.
