(1) The church at Tansley is dedicated to the Holy Trinity. It was erected in 1839-40, and a parochial district was allotted to it. It is a neat stone structure in the Gothic style, with a pinnacled tower at the west end. There are nearly 300 sittings, of which 148 are free. (2) Holy Trinity Church was built in 1839-40 by John Mason of Derby in an Early English style. The north aisle by Stevens and Robinson in the Gothic style was added in 1869. One of the south aisle windows contains a depiction of the archangel Uriel, by Ford Madox Brown (possibly 1862, but may be an early 1900s copy). The 1672 bowl of the font came from the St James' church in Derwent before it was submerged in the Ladybower Reservoir (see SMR 4662). (3)
