All Saints Parish Church in Bakewell

...a Grade I listed building

Dominating the skyline from a hillside perch above the town is the imposing All Saints’ Parish Church.


This Grade I listed building is broad and low and has an octagonal tower with a graceful spire. The bulk of the church as it stands now dates from the 13th and 14th centuries, though there are many fragments of Saxon and Norman Stone

Parts of the cruciform building date back to Norman times and Saxon relics suggest even earlier origins.

Look out for the richly-carved stump of a 9th century cross in the churchyard.

Inside, the Vernon chapel is the last resting place of prominent family members including Dorothy Vernon and her husband, Sir John Manners, who were said to have eloped from nearby Haddon Hall.
