II*

2. Parish church, incorporating part of nave of monastic church of small Angustinian Priory founded between 1100 and 1154 by William de Greley. Church in ruinious state when restored in 1786 and again restored and present chancel built in 1872. Coursed stone with slate roof. Much of internal stonework of monastic nave may survive but part of C14 north arcade visibly remains and blocked door at west end of south wall probably led to cloisters. C15 tower, at east end of north aisle, formerly open to choir through lofty arch. Tower crenellated and buttressed. Have has 2 Gothic windows with third above centre door on north side C17, C18 and C19 monuments include alabaster monument at east end of north aisle to Sir Thomas Gresley + 1699 designed by Sir William Wilson. Figure of Sir Thomas, in wig and gown, flanked by 2 children as weepers and surrounded by arms of his ancestors. Wall monument in south aisle to John Alleyne (died 1712) (the Alleynes owned Priory site after 1556). Three Royal coats of arms (2 of reign of George III). Misericord seats in chancel and at rear of nave, thought to have been carved by Artus Quellin, a Flemish craftsman in mid C17. These came from Drakelaw Hall, home of Gresley family but Cox says they may have belonged to church originally. (Cox J.C p 125. Notes on the churches of Derbyshire 1875-79). (Bulmer p 721 Directory of Derbyshire 1895).
