St Edmunds Church at Fenny Bentley village in Derbyshire

St Edmunds Church
St Edmunds Church

The Church of St Edmund probably dates back to the 14th century but it was very heavily restored in the 19th century when the spire was added to the west tower. Much of the stained glass also dates from the 19th century. The 2 impressive features of the church are its 16th century screens and the alabaster Beresford tomb, which represents Sir Thomas Beresford, his wife Agnes and their 21 children all completely shrouded. Sir Thomas Beresford had fought at Agincourt along with some of his sons.
