Lady Jessie Clegg
Lady Clegg was one of the founder members of the Friends of Lead Church,
and in the 1980's she and other members of the group campaigned to have St Mary's Church, Lead, brought into the care
of The Redundant Churches Fund, now The Churches Conservation Trust. Lady Clegge continued to be the driving force behind
the friends group until her death in January 2010. In May 2011 the Friends of Lead Church planted a Hawthorn Tree in the Church
Garden in celebration of Lady Clegg.
