St Mary's Church Wirksworth

St Mary is the largest church in our team. It stands in a churchyard long since closed for burials, which now provides green space in the centre of the town. Its cruciform shape provides a fascinating space for the visitor to explore the many corners in which wonderful discoveries in stone and marble are to be found. The market town of Wirksworth has a good number of ships, schools, eating places and pubs for the visitor to discover and is fast becoming a popular tourist destination in the Derbyshire Dales. The annual Wirksworth Arts Festival sprang out of the celebration of the church's patronal festival. The traditional "clypping" services on that day involves the congregation joining hands around the church to embrace or "clypp" it.
