Welcome from The Very Revd. Dr. Stephen Hance, Dean of Derby
Welcome! Thank you for exploring this website where you will find lots of information about Derby Cathedral, one of Derby’s most beautiful and historic sites as well as the home of a vibrant Christian community and the venue for many exciting and innovative events today. I am so glad you are here!
Worship has been offered on this site for more than a thousand years, and the present building goes back nearly three hundred years with a tower which is considerably older. Inside the Cathedral you will find important monuments of Derby’s past, such as the tomb of Bess of Hardwick, the wrought iron screen by Robert Bakewell, and the memorial of Florence Nightingale.
You will also find a place to be still and prayerful, either by yourself – the tiny St. Katherine’s Chapel in the crypt is perfect for this – or in one of the daily services, many of which include wonderful choral music. Read more
