Christ Church, Litton

Recent Photograph of Christ Church (Litton)

Situated on the outskirts of Litton on the right hand side of the road travelling towards Tideswell, Christ Church is - according to Kelly's Directory of 1932 - “a building of Stancliffe stone, seating 120 (which) opened in 1928”. Prior to that, according to Kelly's Directory of 1912, “divine service was conducted in the Church National school-room every Sunday and Wednesday evenings, by the vicar of Tideswell and his curate”. The Derbyshire Record Office Guide to Parish Registers confirms the opening date of 1928, but says it is a rebuild of the chapel of ease for Tideswell which was built in 1868. The latter is however still standing, and is a much grander edifice. It is in the centre of the village overlooking the Village Green, and now wholly in use as the Village School.
