Christ Church, Macclesfield Road, Burbage - High Peak

A large church of Romanesque Revival style dating from 1860. The building, by Henry Currey, was funded by the Seventh Duke of Devonshire. Repairs to the south aisle and north slope of the nave have recently been completed following a fundraising campaign. The church was awarded a grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund in 2015, and re-roofing of the chancel, organ chamber and north east vestry roof has been completed. The interior suffers from significant condensation.
