Parish History

Arley St Wilfred is an Ancient parish and consists of Old and New Arley and Sloley Hill.

Old Arley contains the mediaeval church of St Wilfred, and a Methodist church nearby. New Arley contains St Michael's C of E and St Joseph's Catholic Church, both originally built in response to the influx of miners in the first half of the 20th century. Arley's mining industry is now long gone. The two Anglican churches form one parish, and St Joseph's is run from St Anne's, Chapel End, Nuneaton.
