The Church of All Saints, Kedleston :: Shared Description

All Saints Church, Kedleston, is a redundant Anglican church which stands adjacent to SK3140 : Kedleston Hall, a country house in Derbyshire. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building (English Heritage Building ID: 78879 LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).

The ancient church is all that remains of the mediæval village of Kedleston which was cleared after the present hall was begun in 1759. Despite having plans drawn up for a private chapel in his new house, Sir Nathaniel Curzon, the 1st Baron Scarsdale, decided to retain the old church in which his ancestors were buried. The settlement of Kedleston was recorded in the Domesday Book, and the first mention of a church here was in 119899. The only remaining part of that church is the Norman south doorway and the adjoining wall. The majority of the present church dates from rebuilding in the 13th century. At some time between 1480 and 1510, the top of the tower was rebuilt in Perpendicular style. The church was declared redundant on 1 April 1983, and was vested in the Churches Conservation Trust on 18 April 1989 (LinkExternal link Diocese of Derby).
