Cathedral of the Peak, Tideswell

The church of St. John the Baptist in Derbyshire, although not a cathedral, is known as the ‘Cathedral of the Peak’ due to its size and splendour. The largest church in the area is also a grade I listed building.
The team recently carried out an inspection and phase of works on various aspects of the tower details including the pinnacles.
Traces of the old Norman church can be seen in the chancel, but the current church as it stands now was all built in the same period, starting around 1320 and completed just after 1400. The chancel and tower were last to be built and are examples of Perpendicular gothic of the area.
