About Anne Hopwood

The Talbot family was a recusant Catholic family during the reign of Elizabeth I.

Salesbury is first recorded as a chapelry but in 1866 it became a civil parish. The Old English name of the village is 'Salebyry', dating from 1246 AD and 'Salewelle' dating from 1296 AD. This means 'burh by Sale Wheel' (burh is an Old English word). Sale Wheel is the name of a pool in the River Ribble where the river winds, contracts and foams over huge rocks and boulders within the channel and means "pool where willows grow". Wheel comes from the Anglo-Saxon word "weal" meaning a whirlpool.[3] Eventually the village was named Salesbury.

In 1873 a new vicar Rev. Peter Hopwood Hart arrived and set up a committee to raise money for a new church. The old chapelry was removed and a church was re-built in the same position. The church was finally consecrated on 29 June 1887. It was known as the Jubilee Church as it was built in the year of the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria. It was built in a 'late 14th-century Gothic' design by the architects Stones & Gradwell.[6] Today the church in one of the main features in Salesbury. It boasts stained glass windows, an organ and a regular choir.[7] The church has a graveyard[8] which surrounds the church and includes spaces for both gravestones and cremation plaques.[9] Currently there is no vicar but the church is helped but the assistant curate The Reverend Andrew Malcolm. The church is also home to a monthly Mothers Union.[10]
