Church of St Michael and All Angels in Taddington
...one of the prettiest in the Peak
This church has been described as 'one of the prettiest and best-proportioned churches of the Peak'.
The most important and dominant building in Taddington
, the Parish church of St Michael & All Angels
is characterised by its slender spire.
Founded in the 12th
century but dating mostly from the early 14th century, it has an elegant four-bay arcade and tall chancel lighted by flat-headed windows like those at Tideswell.
The church was extensively restored in 1891 and contains a rare stone lectern, a stone font dating from the 13th
century, and a fine brass to Richard Blackwall, his wife and children, which is dated 1505.
