Such a lovely place, with plenty of history and a really nice walk upto the war memorial overlooking Matlock. The vicar is very pleasant and helpful adding to the shear joy of this church.

This church is well kept and of great historical merit, the stained glass windows are beautiful. There are some 17 th century may queen headdresses which are fascinating.
