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

Parish church of C12 origin with later fabric. The nave roof structure is exposed and has modern infill panels. Rainwater disposal is problematic; there are large damp patches internally and significant condensation sometimes occurs. The nave roof was re-covered with Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grant for Places of Worship c1996. This scheme also funded remedial work in 2010. A Heritage Lottery Fund application for further investigative work was not successful in 2013. Historic England continues to liaise with the congregation to find a positive solution.
