The Church is dedicated to St. John the Baptist dating back to the 14th. Century. It has a splendid altar, ornate wood carvings and brasses, impressive timber roof as well as beautiful stained glass windows. It certainly deserves the tag of "Cathedral of the Peak"....More

Having visited this historic and once beautiful church many times in the past it was most disappointing to see how the interior has deteriorated. Floral displays were not looked after, petals on the floor and withered foliage. Cob webs were abundant. Lots of dust in...More

Can rightfully be called the cathedral of the Peak. Wonderful interior which really does give you the impression of being a mini cathedral. Plenty to see and is an interest to all ages. Stained glass windows are especially worth the visit as is the alter...More

A stunning church, well worth a visit, which earns the name "Cathedral of The Peaks". The wooden pew carvings with fine details were wonderful, and very unusual in a village church. The stained glass is striking too and it seems to be a lively community.
