Chesterfield, St Mary & All Saints

Chesterfield, St Mary & All Saints

"Its ponderous steeple, pillared in the sky,

    Rises with twist in pyramidal form,

    And threatens danger to the timid eye

    That climbs in wonder."  Samuel Bromley 1822

Welcome to St Mary's and All Saints, the ancient parish church of Chesterfield, with its unique crooked spire famous throughout the world.

The Church celebrates the Eucharist every day of the week, as well as Morning and Evening Prayer. You also may sit awhile, light a votive candle and pray for yourself and loved ones in the quiet tranquillity of the church.

The church is the largest parish church in the Diocese of Derby and is centrally located in the town centre. Take some time to note the stained glass windows (some glass dating from the Medieval period), the Jacobean pulpit made of 'Black Bog Oak', the pre-Norman font and the various chapels (one of which contains the Foljambe family tombs).

Why not book a tour of the church tower to see the ringing room, the belfry, the view from under the Spire and the glorious vista over Chesterfield from the tower's parapet?

We hope to see you soon.
