What a wonderful church!! So much to explore inside! We used the trail guide (adult and child versions) so as not to miss anything. Totally fascinating and well worth a visit to discover hidden treasures from the past!!

The exterior of this church is magnificent, with a tower so strong and erect, and delicate, ornate carvings in the stonework. Sadly, I can't review the interior as it wasn't open.

We visited Wirksworth on a rainy afternoon and discovered the Church while wandering about. It is a beauty - lots of really surprising and interesting things to see as well as feeling like a very spiritual place. Lovely.

This church has features dating from saxons times. Well worth a look inside for an interesting historical journey. Well worth a walk round this old part of Wirksworth. On the square around the church are also the old alms houses and the old grammar school....More
