“A magnificent church”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This huge village church is very special. The oak furniture, fittings and carvings are superb. The organ case carving remains unfinished as a result of the craftsman dying ! This beautiful building justifies its pseudonym and is obviously a focal point of the village community.

“Closed - 10am Saturday morning!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

I think it would have been marvellous had we been able to get in. Despite the website saying it opened at 9am it wasn't open at 10am on a Saturday in Lent. Some church!

“Find these Pubs”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

The Bulls Head at Foolow and The Barrel Inn we liked but all the pubs in Tideswell were not serving food except The Horse & Jockey. The Anchor Inn was closed altogether.

“Fantastic church”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

A fantastic church in the village of Tideswell. Beautiful from the outside and lovely (although a little untidy and dusty) on the inside.

“Waht a gem”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

The church was open with no restrictions as to where you could go. It provided an invaluable insight into the local ecclesiastical history. Well worth a visit.
