Church of St Giles, Church Lane, Killamarsh - North East Derbyshire

The church dates from the C12, C14, and C15. Previously a small village church, it is now located in a built up residential area. In 1885 the chancel and porch were rebuilt and the north aisle and vestry added. The older parts of the church are constructed in coal measures sandstone, the C19 addition to the north is in magnesian limestone. Differential settlement due to coal mining has caused cracking of the north aisle stonework and west window tracery, allowing rainwater to enter the church. Repairs funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Place of Worship are due to be completed in 2018.
