Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1868, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 describes Curbar as a township and small village, 5 miles north-east from Bakewell and 3 from Grindleford station, on the Dore and Chinley section of the London, Midland and Scottish railway. The ecclesiastical parish was formed in 1869 from that of Baslow, St Anne, and includes the townships of Calver and Froggatt.

The church of All Saints was said to be built in 1867, and "a small edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave of three bays, south aisle, south porch, and a small western turret containing one bell". There are 350 sittings.

The parish records date from 1868. The living was then a vicarage, in the gift of the vicar of Baslow, and had been held since 1931 by the Rev. Arthur G. Kirby M.A. of Keble College, Oxford.

Prior to the opening of the Church, services were held on the upper floor of a barn belonging to Stocking Farm, first licensed for divine worship according to the rites of the Church of England in 1844. Further details are provided in a separate entry in this database.

The following information about the Church has been provided to accompany the photographs on the right. A list of people who have supplied the information is included in the Acknowledgements, below.

[Image 1] All Saints Church is officially nominated the Parish Church of Calver, Curbar & Froggatt, but it is physically within Curbar parish. Its building as an Anglican Church was somewhat contentious since land in Calver was owned by the Eyres of Hassop, who were staunch Catholics, and naturally unenthusiastic about an Anglican Church being built on their land. However eventually agreement was obtained, and coupled with financial support from the Duke of Devonshire, All Saints Church, Curbar was consecrated in 1868.[1]

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
