This is a nice small stone built Norman church restored in the 19thC in the centre of the village surrounded by its graveyard.
The doorway, chancel arch and arch beneath the tower are the original Norman work. The round archways between the nave and side aisle and along the wall of the side aisle are 19thC.
The side pillars of the doorway have been worn away which is thought to have been caused by sharpening of arrows when Archery was practised on a Sunday. Above the archway is a beautifully carved tympanum with two carved figures. The round font is Norman and has the remains of carvings around the bowl.
In the nave is a splendid memorial to the Fitzherbert family with two sets of kneeling figures. There are more memorials to the family in the chancel. On the walls are funeral hatchments and above the chancel arch is a large painting of the Royal coat of arms.
The pulpit is a huge wooden structure which was originally a double decker pulpit but has been cut down.
This is a nice little church which is kept open and well worth a visit if in Tissington.
The post code for the church is DE6 1RA. The grid reference is SK176523.
