This Church 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 1677, but we understand it was closed before 1800.

Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses, Derbyshire (1986) mentions just one place of worship in Tupton - this former Friends Meeting House. Their account records that it was built in 1677, closed by the late 18th century and sold in 1806. The site is now occupied by a house of two stories, which although largely 19th century, includes the north wall and a small upper window, with re-used jambs and cill. A stone dated 1673 is incorporated into a garden wall to the south, and in an outhouse to the west are two inscribed stones: one "IW/1707" and one with part of a funerary inscription.

The site of its burial ground is marked on OS Maps of 1878-1885 showing it to be on the south side of the right angled bend in Nethermoor Road, where it would have skirted Tupton Green Colliery. Its plot is bordered by a footpath which bears south towards Packman's Cottage.


Now or formerly Quaker.

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