This Pugin masterpiece is approached from the city across a pedestrian bridge over a busy highway. It makes a dramatic approach. Entering the church, I am met by two very friendly welcomers who obviously love their church. What a difference good welcomers make! But this...More

What a awesome architectural building this is, with a lovely road bridge to go over, with the church in full view all the time. I would recommend to all, to visit this church.

Stumbled upon this church by going for a walk through Derby city centre. Tucked away over the road bridge, very pretty church. A kids club was going on when we visited but we were still allowed to wander around at our leisure.

Went to mass here while we were visiting Derby and a very nice church inside. The decor is good and the stained glass windows are fantastic, well worth a visit even if you do not go to mass.
