Church of St Mary, Church Yard, Wirksworth - Derbyshire Dales

Early English to Perpendicular cruciform church with central tower. Restored in1870 by Sir George Gilbert Scott and again in C20. Some roof coverings are aged and defective. There are numerous active leaks and some coverings require replacement. The Parochial Church Council and supporters are working hard to raise funds for roof covering renewal and associated repairs. Development work has been undertaken and work has been tendered. An application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund is anticipated.
