We don't know whether 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 1879, and we understand it is still open.

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 2] St Anne's Church is a Chapel of Ease of Tideswell, and according to Derbyshire Record Office's Parish Register Guide, was opened in 1879.

It is on the right (north) side of the main road from Tideswell to Buxton (B6049), at the crossroads where the road from Cressbrook Mill, following the bank of the river Wye up from the Bakewell direction, joins on the left. The old road from Tideswell, - now called “Meadow Lane” - doubles back on the right. If you're wondering why it's the old road, look at the limestone cliffs behind the church, as that's the direction it has to climb!

A short distance along the road, in the Buxton direction, is the former Millers Dale Railway Station, and nearby is the pub - “The Anglers Rest”.[1]


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.
