Darton – All Saints

Darton - All Saints

Understood to have been rebuilt by the Priors of Monk Bretton Priory (some 4.5miles away), starting in about 1480, the Parish Church of All Saints is an excellent survivor of late perpendicular architecture of the end of the 15th and into the early 16th century. Unusually, the church has not been subject to any major structural alterations either by the Georgians or Victorians; although the majority of the main interior fittings, such as pews, have changed.  Wonderful mediaeval doors survive.

David has recently become the inspecting architect and is looking forward to helping the PCC with its care and repair.
