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 1880, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 records Over Haddon as a township in the parish of Bakewell, 2 miles south from Bakewell - the village, seated on a rocky eminence, commands a most romantic view". The late Earl Cowper, at considerable expense, had a reservoir erected on the New Close farm, in the township, "which is supplied with water pumped by machinery from the river Lathkil, to supply the inhabitants of this upland, who have in times of drought suffered much". The waste or overflow from the reservoir (in 1932) was conducted by pipes to supply the village.

St Anne was said to be erected in 1880 as a chapel of ease (presumably of Bakewell), and described as "a building of stone, consisting of chancel, nave, vestry, south porch and a western turret containing one bell". There were then 80 sittings. Also mentioned is a cemetery of 2 acres - this can be seen from above to lie to the south of, and adjacent to the Church. They are situated on the east side of a winding road leading down to the river Lathkill, which can be crossed by footbridge. Old Maps also show there was a ford.

It was preceded as a place of worship by a Licensed School Room, which opened in 1840.


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.
