St. Chad’s is our oldest church building. It is rich in history and boasts beautiful stone work and stained glass windows. 

Its isolated location next to St. Chad's Water lends the whole area a tranquil atmosphere. The long-vanished village of Wilne was subject to flooding by the nearby river Derwent. Consequently, the people relocated to nearby Draycott, on higher ground, leaving St. Chad's Church with only a couple of houses nearby.

St. Chad's church can be found in an idyllic pastoral setting next to St. Chad's Water Local Nature Reserve.
