    Default Crich Carr Church, Crich, Derbyshire, March 2019


    1. The History
    This derelict Primitive Methodist Chapel, on the Middle Lane, Crich, was built about 1845 and held about 100 worshippers. A Sabbath School was taught here and the Derbyshire Courier from 22nd July 1837 makes reference to the Sunday School Sermons being preached in the open air by the Rev W Stokes due to the chapel being too small.

    In 1877 it was decided to build a larger chapel to cater for the larger congregations with the existing church having been deemed inadequate for the accommodation of the congregation and the Sabbath school. Mr John Sims of Crich Carr donated land to erect a new chapel and schoolroom. He also donated the stone required and £100 towards the cost of building the replacement chapel on Top Lane. At the time there was a race on with the Crich Baptists to see who could finish their chapel first. The Crich Carr Methodists claimed a moral victory.

    The recent history of the church is really sketchy. It has been empty for some time and appears to have been used for storage in recent years.

    2. The Explore
    Remember passing this place while driving to Ambergate on my last visit and then completely forgetting about it. Then recently stumbled across it again. This time stopped for a shufty. It’s a delightful little church but shut tight. Externally its really photogenic plus managed to have a peek through the broken stained-glass window. It’s packed full of stuff. The roof is in decent nick and it would make a fantastic little home if converted. It seems unclear who currently owns the place but hopefully some one will claim it and give it the TLC the place needs.

    My eyebrows few to the back of my head when I saw the internals!
    That's a cute little church and appears to be in fair condition too - dry inside still?
    I think the iron bars outside are to do with a boiler/heating system? That was probably down some steps beneath an outer wall.
    I know I complain about there being no derelict buildings left up here, this has reminded me of something. Woo I might even get an explore done up here..
    Interesting and well spotted. I reckon by Summer it'll be well hidden that.
    Full of meaty goodness.
