The millennium wall in Horsley Woodhouse was unveiled on Saturday 9th December 2000 by the Right Reverend Jonathan S. Bailey Lord Bishop of Derby. The structure was commissioned by Horsley Woodhouse Parish Council and erected on October 2000 to celebrate both the Millennium and the 100th birthday of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother which occurred on 4th August 2000 also to preserve part of the village's heritage.

The stone was gifted by Saint Susanna's Parochial Church Council and decorative stonewark originally formed two windows, one in the end gable and one in the south wall of the Church Hall Sitwell Room prior to its refurbishment.

The church hall was built in 1869 by Squire Wilmot-Sitwell of Stainsby Hall and was the second school in the Parish until the opening of the present school ion 1913.

Most of the original stone was re-used in the re-building, but the original windows were not included in the redesigned Church Hall and now form part of this commemorative wall which also includes the base plinth and is capped with the parapet stones. The stone originated from local quarries at Coxbench and some infill matching stone used here, from Rugely.
