Derby Cathedral

A remarkable fusion of three styles: early 16C (Great Tower), early 18C (the nave designed by James Gibbs) and late 20C, the rear chancel. Inside, classical simplicity forms a contrast with Bakewell's magnificent screen and wrought-iron grills and the canopy of the high altar. South of the choir lies Bess of Hardwick, eclipsing her neighbours when lying at rest as she did during her lifetime.
