Feature Sets

The old church was rebuilt in 1862-3 by Stevens and Robinson. The only medieval feature remaining in the building is a Romanesque tympanum belonging to the S doorway but rebuilt into the interior N wall of the aisle.


Findern (or Finderne) is recorded in the Domesday Book. In 1066 its lord was the king and it was worth £25. William I included it as part of a gift to Burton Abbey and by 1086 it was worth £10. The church was a chapel of Mickel-Over.


Exterior Features



The tympanum is almost identical to that at Tissington.
