Church of St Edmund, Back Street, Castleton, High Peak - High Peak

Parish church of C12 origin with later fabric. Rainwater disposal is problematic; there are large damp patches internally, blocked drains and significant condensation occurs. Historic England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund awarded a grant to re-cover the nave roof in c1996. Further funds were awarded in 2010 for remedial work. The church continues to suffer on account of blocked drains and poor rainwater disposal goods. An application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund was unsuccessful in 2013. The church had since raised funds and work is due to commence mid-2019.
