St Alkmund's Church, Duffield
Saint Alkmund's Church is a church dating back to the first millennium, situated on the banks of the River Derwent to the south of Duffield, Derbyshire. It is the parish church of Duffield and associated with the nearby church of St Paul's in Little Eaton. In times past the Parish of Duffield was much larger than it is now, covering the area known as Duffield Frith. The church's distance from the centre of the village is thought be because it was next to Duffield Bridge which was used by pilgrims and other travellers.
The church is Grade I listed. The current building dates from the 14th century, but was restored in 1847 by James Piers St Aubyn and in 1896–97 by John Oldrid Scott. Its weathercock was installed in 1719 by noted ironsmith Robert Bakewell.
