Baslow, St Anne

Baslow, St Anne

St Annes church, Baslow was built on the bank of the river Derwent over 800 year ago.  The church was originally a chapelry of Bakewell at the time of King Johns reign.  Nothing remains of the original Norman church.  The oldest parts of the building, the tower and spire, date from the 13th century.  The building was restored in the mid-19th century, and the chancel was rebuilt in 1911. 

The church has some good 20th century wood carving in the chancel.  Part of a Saxon cross may be found in the porch.  The porch also has an ancient coffin stone built into it, which is approximately 700 years old.  Outside, there is an unusual diamond jubilee clock face, which has the legend Victoria 1897 instead of numbers.
