The Parish is very variedThe pictures which make up the banner across the top of our web pages are details from the East Window of St. Paul's Church Ashby, depicting the mixed rural and industrial nature of the parish (this was the case when that Church was built in 1925 and remains true today even after large areas of farm-land have been turned over to housing, leading to a present-day adult population of about 27,000).
The Parish includes part of the famous Scunthorpe Steel Works (pictured here) and other significant industrial and commercial units ...
several large housing estates of mixed types (one such, pictured left, stretches to the horizon and beyond!) with schools, and local shops and larger retail areas ...
and large areas of farmland which is put to various uses including arable and free-range pig and egg production.
By-the-by, these photos were all taken - facing different directions - from the same spot, on the South Aisle roof of St. Paul's Church whilst repairs were being carried out!
The Parish has two clergy posts (one currently being in vacancy) and two Readers:
