Artist's Description

St Giles church,Hartington,Peak District,Derbyshire,England.

St Giles Church in Hartington dates back to the 13th century, although the tower is a later 15th century addition, built of red ashlar sandstone with set-back buttresses and battlements. There is also a most unusual double-storeyed porch which was added in the Middle Ages. The church consists of a chancel, nave of three bays, aisles, transepts and a western tower which contains a clock and 3 bells. The church has four piscinae and there is a brass to Ann Ratcliffe (1770) and monuments to Sir Hugh Bateman of Hartington Hall who died on 8th January 1824 and to Richard Bateman of Middleton Hall who died in 1761.
St Giles was restored by subscription in 1858 at a cost of nearly £1,000 and the bells were renewed in 1884.
Within the church is an unusual effigy of a lady thought to be Margaret de Ferrers, Countess of Derby, which probably dates from 1224. It was discovered during the restoration work of 1858 and appears as though the woman is in her coffin with only head and feet exposed.
Also to be seen within St Giles are medieval wall paintings depicting the 12 tribes of Israel.
Two bequests found in Hartington church records include that of Mary Flint who left an endowment of £4 a year for the church stove in winter and Thomas Bateman who in his will dated May 11th 1840 requested that £50 be spent on clothing to be distributed ’among the deserving poor at Christmas".
