For such a small town. Came here with my father who was retracing his roots, having been evacuated from Guernsey during the Second World War. This was his first visit for over 70 years and he was delighted with the plaque in the grounds commemorating those days. This is a lively church with much of interest in it. What us hard to understand today is how such a small town supported such a large and ornate church.

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.

For the past ten years, we have regularly passed the turn off to Tideswell on our travels and intended to go. We made a special effort not realizing it was only one mile from that junction and a mile worth travelling.
The village is bigger than you think with old buildings and a few quaint shops.
The best thing though is the cathedral, in reality a large church which towers in the market square.
From the gate walk down the tree lined path to the entrance and once inside what a surprise you get.
You look along the main aisle to see the alter and stained glass in the distance, there are two smaller chaples on either side but the most interesting to me was the wood carvings.
The church is clean and welcoming giving a feeling of total peace, the grounds at the front are pleasant to sit in but the rear of the grounds are a bit messy.
Although it was raining it didnt ruin our day but I do suggest you visit on a sunny day to get the full feeling of both the church and the village.
This is one place we intend going back to on a warmer, brighter day.
