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 1903, and we understand it is still open.

Travelling north through Holloway, Christ Church is just beyond of the road sign introducing 'Lea'. It was built originally to a design by P.H. Currey and as a chapel of ease of St John the Baptist Church in Dethick, but is today, the main place of worship for the parishioners of the composite parish of "Dethick, Lea & Holloway".

There seems to be a very small graveyard, though there is also a Cemetery just a short distance down the road, towards Holloway. The Cemetery appears to span the bounds of the two villages as the road sign is adjacent to its boundary. Strangely there is no sign from the other direction saying "Holloway".

"Dethick and Lea" was originally a chapelry in the parish of Ashover, and baptisms 1754-1847 can be found in the transcription of Ashover register. The composite parish of "Dethick, Lea and Holloway" came into existence in 1901, with the addition of Holloway, which was previously in the parish of Crich.


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.
