Middleton Church & Vicarage

Jo Williams writes:
The one I can date is of the Church & Vicarage which was posted from Matlock on 2 July 1920 to a Miss Arkwright, The Gate (? - not v clear) House, Wirksworth thanking her for inviting the sender to a meeting on 13th.

Taken 2009. Note how the chimneys have been shortened.

Entries in the Census for the Vicarage can be seen as follows:
1901 | 1891 | 1881 | 1871 | 1861 | 1851 | 1841

The Parsonage dates from 1852. The register dates from the year 1839. The living is a vicarage, tithe rent-charge, gross yearly value about £300, including 1 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the vicar of Wirksworth, and held since 1875 by the Rev. Edwin Cuthbert Harward M.A. of Trinity College, Oxford.
