Tideswell

Tideswell is a large village with an imposing church (photo left) often described as the "Cathedral of the Peak", built when Tideswell was an important market town and lead-mining centre. There is much to explore and see in the rest of the village - the late 18thC George Hotel, Blake house and Eccles House are especially interesting. Tideswell received a market charter in 1250 and flourished in the wool and lead trades in the 14th century, explaining the lavishness of the church. It is renowned for the quality of its well - dressing ceremony which starts the Wakes Week on the Saturday nearest John the Baptist's Day - the week's festivities are concluded with a torchlight procession and a unique Morris Dance.

The imposing church was erected between 1300 and 1370, almost wholly in the Decorated style, with its unusual eight - pinnacled tower in the Perpendicular style. Inside the building is a wealth of wood - carving, mainly 19th century, by local man Advent Hunstone (photo right).
