St John the Baptist, Main Street

St John the Baptist, Main Street, Chelmorton, Derbyshire SK17 9SH

England's highest church with a spire situated at the top of the historic village of Chelmorton . The 15th century spire is recessed onto its 13th century tower and is topped by a weathervane in the form of a locust - a reminder of John the Baptist’s time in the wilderness. Parts of the Grade II* listed church date from the early 13th century and the interior contains a complete 14th-century Perpendicular-style stone chancel screen.
