Parish church of St Mary in Tissington

...believed to have been built shortly after 1100

On an imposing hill opposite the Hall is the splendid 12th century Norman tower of the Parish Church of St Mary.

St. Mary's is the parish church of the pretty little Derbyshire village of Tissington, famous for its annual Well Dressing.

Although extensively restored in 1854, there is still plenty of Norman work to be seen inside, including the south doorway, the chancel arch and the 11th century tub-shaped font.

There is a fine double-decker early 17th century wall monument to Francis FitzHerbert (died 1619) and Sir John FitzHerbert, who died in 1643, with their wives near the chancel arch, and more family monuments dating from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries in the chancel.
