St Catherine's Church Cossall
The Church at Cossall is dedicated to Saint Catherine, a native of Alexandria, she was both beautiful and learned. The Emporer Maximain was very much attracted to her, but because she refused his attentions he ordered her to be tortured. She survived the torture but was then beheaded and buried on Mount Sinain.
The church is quite small and stands at a tight bend in the hilltop village. The entrance to the churchyard is through a traditional lychgate built as a memorial in 1928.
The original nave and chancel were built in the 13th Century with arcades built later. The south side in the 14th Century but the north side appears to be part of the 1842 alterations. There were alterations in 1718, but there were major changes in 1842-
In 1923 the annual output of coal was 240,000 tons. By 1933 Cossall coal was used for Gas, Household and Steam. Pyrites was also mined at the pit and 200 tons of Cossall Colliery Company diamond Briquettes were made each day. The Brickyard made 10,000 bricks per day.
