St Mary and All Saints is the largest church building in Derbyshire, and is famous locally and internationally for its crooked spire, attracting visitors from around the world.
The church is open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. for anyone to find a quiet place to pray, to visit or look around.
Please see the Contact page for the church’s location and how to get here.
Tower Tours – please read carefully!

Tickets are available a week in advance from the church Gift Shop, and at present cannot be obtained online or over the telephone, sorry.
ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TRAVEL, PLEASE CHECK BACK ON THIS PAGE REGULARLY, AS TOURS ARE LIABLE TO BE CANCELLED IF THERE IS A FUNERAL OR OTHER EVENT IN THE CHURCH BUILDING, OR IF FOR ANY REASON THE VOLUNTEER GUIDES ARE NOT AVAILABLE.
ALTHOUGH THE PEREGRINES BRED VERY SUCCESSFULLY, THE HEN MET WITH AN ACCIDENT (SHE IS CURRENTLY BEING NURSED BACK TO HEALTH) AND HER MATE COULD NOT COPE WITH FOUR HUNGRY CHICKS ON HIS OWN. AS A RESULT, THEY HAVE SADLY DIED. THIS DOES MEAN THAT TOUR GROUPS CAN NOW USE THE VIEWING PLATFORM.
