The fourth Fourstones’ stone appears just south of the freestone rock faces, and has an old quarry site of its own. Ganister is an extremely hard rock with very few natural fracture lines and with a distinctive orangey yellow colour. It was ground up and used to line kilns and furnaces.
St Aidan’s, green, wooden, Mission Church sits in the centre of the village. It is unusual in that it is not owned by the diocese, but by the parochial church council. It is an ‘off-the-peg’ Victorian church built for £350 in 1892 at the expense of the Rev. George Cruddas. It is said that it was built so that the bulk of his parishioners did not need to trek to Warden to attend services.
Butt Bank is where Warden Parish ends and Newbrough Parish begins. It was from here that W. P. Collier took his postcard view showing how Fourstones and Frankham cowered under the quarries in the 1920s.
