Feature Sets

Muggiton is a small village about seven miles NW of Derby. The church lies to the S of the village, and was built of coursed squared sandstone with ashlar dressings. The structure consists of a chancel, a nave with S aisle, a porch, and a Norman unbuttressed W tower, which is connected to the nave by an early 13thc tower arch featuring semicircular keeled responds and a pointed unchamfered arch. The building was restored in 1894 and, again, in 1925. The only Romanesque features here are found in the W tower and consist of the bell opening and the corbel table.


The Domesday Survey records one priest in 'Mogintun'. In 1066 the manor was under the lordship of Gamal of Shottle; in 1086 Ketil of Edensor held it, being Henry of Ferrers tenant-in-chief.
