Church of St Thomas, Chatsworth Road, Chesterfield - Chesterfield

Parish church with embattled and pinnacled tower built 1830-31 by Woodhead and Hurst with chancel of 1888 by Naylor and Sale. Restored 1903 by Adams. By 2014 steelwork introduced to restrain pinnacles had buckled and was ineffectual, the tower and nave roofs leaked and the painted nave ceiling had suffered water damage. A Heritage Lottery Fund Grant for Places of Worship was awarded in 2015 for tower repairs and these were completed in 2017.
