Saint Edmunds Church, Castleton, Derbyshire - Castleton
Saint Edmunds Church, Castleton, Derbyshire

'The Church of Peak Castle'- dating back to the 12th century, its' history is closely linked with the nearby Pevril Castle.
Of interest are the family box pews- (carved with the names of parishioners who worshipped here 300 years or more ago), a couple of bibles- including a Vinegar bible, and attractive stained glass windows.
