What We Offer

What we offer

Welcome to All Saints' Parish Church, Mackworth, DE22 4NG.

Sadly there are no services in the Parish Church because of the devastating fire on 3rd December, 2020.  This will be the case for the foreseeable future.  However the Church is more than the building and services will continue at our sister churches at Kirk Langley and Mugginton.  For details of those services, please click on the What's on link above and the Calendar link.

Visit this page to keep up to date.  The Parochial Church Council (PCC) is committed to re-building the church so that it will look the same from the outside but the inside will be re-built so that it is more suitable for worship and Community use in the 21st Century.

Progress 

 Sandberg were on site from the 5th to the 8th October carrying out the core sampling to the stonework. The coring went as well as could be expected and samples were retrieved from all 22 locations. 

 

The quality and condition of the samples varied considerably. Some cores were retrieved intact with very little damage apparent, whilst others were clearly affected by cracking damage and could not be retrieved as a core. 

 

In some of the samples, the first 30-40mm of the core was retrieved separately from the main core indicating that the fire had caused a crack at this depth even though the face of the stone may have appeared reasonably intact. We are now awaiting feedback from Sandberg following laboratory testing. 

 

We have uploaded a PDF file containing some photographs showing the coring process underway and a selection of cores and core holes.

 

Buttress Architects were also on site on 8th October. They carried detailed visual inspections of the

stonework to help inform the options appraisal due to be presented at the consultation meeting in

November.

 

We have instructed Buildzone to provide a new external 110v supply and sump pump to the basement below the vestry. We are awaiting further costs and clarifications regarding repowering the pump to the foul water pumping chamber.

 

Hirst have now provided an updated report and recommendations regarding the remaining fixed monuments and artefacts.  Buttress expressed concern at leaving some of the more exposed items unprotected for much longer if there is an intention to restore them. Buttress will forward some comments on this to help to inform any decisions that are made.

About the church

The facilities at the church include a children's play area, disabled toilet facilities and a car park to the front. There are no steps, just be careful on the bumpy path leading in.

The church itself can be traced back to the early 12th century. The present building was largely built in the 14th and 15th centuries, with additions in the 19th century. Derbyshire alabaster features prominently in the interior decoration.
The reredos of alabaster and semi-precious stone is mentioned in many church guide books, as is the r rail and alabaster lectern. The church is set in picturesque, peaceful countryside. It is surrounded by fields on all four sides, yet is only minutes away from the bustle of the city centre. The beauty of the church and its setting makes it an extremely popular venue for weddings.
