St Michael & All Angels, Alsop-en-le-Dale

The church dates from the 12th century and was rebuilt between 1882 and 1883 by Frederick Josias Robinson.[3] The flat roof was removed and replaced with a pitched roof. The plaster on the walls was removed. The floors were re-laid, that in the chancel with Minton encaustic tiles, and the rest with wooden blocks. A new stone font replaced the old one. The pulpit which had formerly been in St Oswald's Church, Ashbourne was installed.  The old stone corbels of the earlier roof show below the nave and the tower is imitation Norman being built in 1882 by F J Robinson.   To mark the Millennium year 2000, a stained glass window was commissioned by the artist, Henry Haig. Designed on the theme of “I saw a new heaven and a new earth” (Revelations 21:1), the window was dedicated by the Bishop of Derby on 30 September 2001.      Post Code: DE6 1QP
