My "Derby Cathedral – Walk To The Altar "Series:

The Cathedral of All Saints (known as Derby Cathedral), is a cathedral church in the City of Derby, England. It is the seat of the Bishop of Derby, and with an area of around 10,950 sq ft (1,017 m2) is the smallest Anglican cathedral in England.

The original church was founded by King Edmund I in about 943 as a royal collegiate church; however, there is no trace of its existence today. The current cathedral dates from the fourteenth century, although it appears to be based on an earlier medieval building, which drawings show was about the same size as the present church. It may be that it became structurally unstable and was pulled down. The tower dates from 1510 to 1530 and was built in the popular perpendicular gothic style of the time.

The cathedral contains the oldest ring of ten bells in the United Kingdom. Other treasures include an eighteenth-century nave with a wrought iron Rood screen by Robert Bakewell, the memorial to Bess of Hardwick, and the Cavendish brasses, including those of Henry Cavendish and Georgiana Spencer, the wife of one of the Dukes of Devonshire.
