All Saints, Youlgreave

DSCF9232A magnificent church in the centre of the village. The signs are good outside, saying that here is a church open every day. Also there is a good welcome in the porch. I found a guide book for £2 and post cards and cards for sale.


Some 41 people had signed the visitors book in July. There were several others in the church during the time I was there and none of them entered anything in the book.

There is a laminated sheet giving various tips as to what to look at here and many things are labelled with the Diocese of Derby ‘Churches to experience and explore’ signs. These help visitors who are unsure what they are looking at.



DSCF9236In the sanctuary are some rather strange ‘candlesticks’ dating from 1875. The East window is an Edward Burn-Jones design made by William Morris and co in 1876. It is worth a good look at.

DSCF9237DSCF9235There is  a WW1 display, as many churches have at the moment.

Prayer requests can be left in a book. I rate All Saints as OK for the purposes of this study.
