About this image
The title on this engraving is incorrect - this is All Saints Church in Mackworth Village and not Markeaton Church as stated.
The chancel was built c 1320 and the nave 1370-80, though the list of incumbents starts at 1200 and a church may have stood at this location prior to these dates. It was rebuilt 1430-70 and the ubiquitous Victorian restorations were carried out in 1851.
This image is one of a collection by the famous local antiquarian, Thomas Bateman, of Middleton by Youlgreave. (1821-1861). Bateman organized his collection by inserting them into a 4 volume copy of Lysons Magna Britannia, Derbyshire, creating a fascinating and unique illustrated record of the county. The purchase of the collection for Derbyshire Libraries was made possible by the generous bequest of Miss Frances Webb of Whaley Bridge, well known local historian, who died in December 2006.
