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 1851, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 describes St Paul's Church as "a building of stone in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel, nave of four bays, north aisle, south porch and a western turret containing 2 bells"". There are two memorial windows to the Ven. Archdeacon and Mrs. hill, inserted by the parishioners in 1867; and memorial brasses to the Ven Hill placed by his daughter, Mrs. Oliver, and to the Rev. W. Barnes, rector here 1868-1906. There are (or were) 388 sittings.

The ecclesiastical parish of Hasland was formed in 1851 from Chesterfield civil parish - the same year the church was built. In 1932, the living had been held since 1913 by the Rev. William Vivian Davies M.A. of Jesus College, Cambridge, who was rural dean of Chesterfield, and perpetual curate of Temple Normanton.

The British Listed Buildings website lists St Paul under "Grassmoor, Hasland and Winsick", providing the additional detail that it was designed by T.C. (Thomas Chambers) Hine, and that the north aisle was added in 1866. It also mentions two south windows with stained glass of 1919 and 1931 which were by Jones & Willis. St Paul's is (to me) superficially similar to All Saints Church at Curbar, so it would be satisfying to learn they were designed by the same architect, but this is not the case - All Saints was, according to Pevsner's Buildings of England, designed by (Anthony) Salvin junior.


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.
