Summary Description

A very remote small medieval chapel-of-ease located on a slope in a field above the site of the deserted medieval village of Ballidon, in lightly populated countryside just within the south-eastern edge of the Peak District National Park. The chapel was probably founded in the 12th century, though an earlier church building on the site cannot be discounted; Ballidon is mentioned in Domesday, but also in a charter of King Edgar in 963. The walls are built of a mixture of dressed sandstone and rubble and dressed limestone, with sandstone ashlar dressings and an open pitched pine nave and oak chancel roof, decked with stone slabs.
