Attended a wedding here - struck by how picturesque the church was. Lovingly kept and such beautiful details. Their choir was other worldly - absolutely stunning.

Very interesting church we visited as part of the Peak Pilgrimage. Well kept church and surroundings, with clean tidy and attractively decorated church- lovely floral decorations. A visit to this church made our day and pilgrimage the richer.

Obviously had to visit the local church next to Chatsworth House where a number of the Duke's and Duchesses of Devonshire are buried. Rebuilt by George Gilbert Scott of St. Pancras Station and Albert Memorial fame.
