Church of St Alkmunds

The Parish Church of St Alkmunds lies a little isolated from the village centre. It has a 14th century east tower with a recessed spire and a beautiful Perp east window in the chancel.

Duffield church was much restored in 1846 and again in 1896. It contains a monument to Sir Roger Mynors who died in 1539, and his wife. There is also a wall monument to Anthony Bradshaw, his wife and their 20 children. Bradshaw was a barrister and the deputy steward of Duffield Firth, a former hunting forest between Duffield and Wirksworth.
