All Saints RC church in Hassop Derbyshire


All Saints RC church in Hassop Derbyshire was built between 1816-1818 by the Roman Catholic architect Joseph Ireland as a private chapel for the Eyre family of Hassop Hall. This is an exquisite Classical Revival temple with an impressive pillared portico in the Etruscan style and a barrel vaulted interior with a coved coffered ceiling.

The ornate altar and reredos is said to be of French origin. In the back gallery is a gem of a chamber organ by H C Lincoln dating from the 1820's and recently restored. Contains a painting of the crucifixation with the Virgin and St John and a monument to Thomas Eyre who died in 1833.
