St John the Baptist Church in Bamford

...unique among Derbyshire churches

Built in 1861, St John the Baptist Church in Bamford is the only church in Derbyshire designed by renowned gothic revival architect William Butterfield.

Butterfield was famed for designing several churches, cathedrals and chapels - perhaps most notably St Paul's Anglican Cathedral in Melbourne, Australia.

Bamford's parish church is a sleek and slender building with a charming needle spire.

The churchyard features a memorial for the victims of the Holocaust.
