Our Church, St Margaret’s of Antioch
The village is one of a group of six Churches, collectively called the Coxford Group, all being ministered by Father Edward Bundock. Having its origin based firmly in a farming background, and being a central point to the Pynkney Estate, Tatterford now has a very diverse populace, but like so many other small villages off the beaten track, has few children amongst its residence.
Tatterford Church, which was built during the mid nineteenth century to replace an earlier Norman Church, has played a significant part in the expansion of the Anglo-Catholic priesthood. In the 1920s the then incumbent, Father William Hand, started a school next to the Church to train boys for a vocation to the priesthood. From here boys would then progress to Mirfield Theological College to train for Holy Orders. Hundreds of boys passed through the school and went on to become Priests in far-flung parts of the globe. The school was finally closed in the 1940s.
