Bakewell Church – All Saint’s Church in Bakewell, Derbyshire, England
Bakewell was mentioned in the Domeday book as having a church and 2 priests signifying its importance even then. In 1502 Bakewell was owned by the Vernon family and passed on to the Manners family in 1567 when Dorothy Vernon married John Manners. Their son, Sir George Manners married Grace Pierrepont who in 1637 founded the grammer school, Lady Manners School. Monuments to the Vernon family can be found in the All Saints Parish Church which stands in a commanding position on the hillside where the town started.
Such a sad gravestone, a little girl only 9 months old, makes you think doesn’t it?, it’s not a practice run, get out and enjoy yourselves.
We’re off to Leyburn to Cow Close Waterfall and then on to Sutton Bank if time allows, Stormy will enjoy the walk, hope my back holds up to it!
Have a great Sunday
