Approaching the church at Edale - Mike Cummins 2009

Holy and Undivided Trinity Church in Edale

...overlooked by Kinder Scout

This charming little Victorian Parish Church was built in 1886 and is the third church on the site.

Before it was constructed, parishioners had to take their deceased across the ‘corpse road’ over Hollins Cross and the Great Ridge to Castleton for burial.

Situated in Edale village, The Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity was designed by Manchester-based architect William Dawes, built during 1885-6, and completed by addition of the broach-spire in 1889.

Broaches are what you can see at the four corners of the tower supporting the spire - 'sloping half pyramids adapting an octagonal spire to a square tower'.
