Chesterfield union, petty sessional division and county court district, rural deanery of Staveley, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell. The Chesterfield canal passes through the parish. The village is lighted with gas by a company formed in 1861, and supplied with water from works at Barlow, the property of the Chesterfield Sanitary Authority. The church of St. John the Baptist is an edifice of stone consisting of chancel, south chantry, nave, aisles, south porch and a western tower, containing a clock and 8 bells, all cast either in 1782 or 1811: the most ancient remains in this church are some fragments of incised slabs worked up in the window sills of two windows in the south aisle and possibly coeval with the church existing at the time of the Domesday Survey; the font is also a fine and early specimen of work, unique in some of its details and dating from the 12th century; the basement of the tower, with its irregular buttresses, and the south doorway, appear to belong to the Early English period; the arcade of the south aisle, consisting of five pointed arches, is Decorated: two low arches on an octagonal pier divide the chancel from the chantry, and above these arches is a clerestory, lighted by six small windows: the church was much altered during the prevalence of the debased Perpendicular style, the upper part off the tower, with its battlements and pinnacles, bearing the date 1681: in the south aisle is a mutilated piscina, and built into the outer wall of the north aisle is a richly-carved recess with a crocketed ogee arch and pinnacles; in the upper half is a painting, now much faded, of the “Resurrection:” on the eastern gable of the nave is a bell-cote containing a sanctus bell: some fragments of ancient glass linger in the east window of the chantry: on the north side of the chancel is an altar tomb, bearing on the upper slab the full-length figure in brass of a knight in plate armour, covered by a tabard, displaying the arms of Frecheville; the head and shoulders of the figure are missing, but above are scrolls with invocatory prayers, an emblem of the Trinity and escutcheons of arms; on the margin is a mutilated inscription to Sir Peter Frecheville, knighted at the battle of Pinkie or Musselburgh, 10 Sept. 1547; on the sides are shields: here also is a monument with figures of a man in armour and his wife, kneeling at the desks facing each other, eight boys in long gowns also kneeling behind the one and seven girls behind the other; above is a figure of the Virgin and Child, and underneath an inscription to “Peyrs Frtchwell, ob. 25 March, 1503, and Maude his wyf:” under one of the arches of the chancel arcade is an alabaster slab, bearing the effigy of an armoured knight, bareheaded and with clasped hands, representing John Frecheville, son of the foregoing Sir Peter, ob. 1509; the remains of similar slabs, much defaced, were removed at the restoration to the chantry, or “Frecheville quire,” now containing the later monuments of that family, including a large marble sarcophagus to John, 1st and only Baron Frecheville, and the last of his race, who died in 1682, and a memorial to his daughter Christian, 1st wife of Lord St. John, of Basing, afterwards Marquess of Winchester and Duke of Bolton; she died in 1653; behind the monument of Lord Frecheville is a fine stained window in the Renaissance style, dated 1676, with his arms; here also is a slab incised with the figure of an ecclesiastic, standing beneath a canopy and supporting with one hand a pastoral staff, intended to commemorate John Warton, a former rector: another incised slab, probably of the 12th century, bears a cross with a simply-formed circular head; the head of a third incised cross is almost entirely concealed by the base of a large canopied niche, designed for two figures of saints and placed in the south-east angle: the church was restored in 1865, when the north aisle was added and the roofs raised: there are 800 sittings: in the churchyard, near the south porch, stands a restored cross, the original portions consisting of the base and most of the shaft. The register dates from 1557 for all entries.
