Derby Cathedral: There has been a church on this site for over 1,000 years, from about 943. The present perpendicular tower was built between 1510 and 1530. The rest of the church was rebuilt in 1725, and the chancel was added between 1967 and 1972. The great perpendicular tower of the Cathedral is all that remains of the Medieval building that was demolished in 1723 and is said to be the second highest in England at 212 feet and has the oldest ring of 10 bells in the world. The nave and the chancel are separated by a wrought iron screen made by the Derby smith Robert Bakewell. The screen is so fine and intricate that it appears as lacework, such was the skill of Bakewell. The cathedral houses many monuments, including that of Bess of Hardwick. here are tower open days twice a year when people can climb the tower, 80ish steps, to get fine views of the city and the ringers give demonstrations of ringing.
