Full Description

For the convenience of the increasing population, a church (chapel-of-ease) was erected here in 1880, at a cost of nearly £4,000. The district allotted to it also included Castle Gresley. The edifice, dedicated to Christ Church, is a large structure of brick in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, clerestoried nave, north and south aisles, and bell turret containing one bell. The arches of the arcade rest on circular piers of stone. There is a fine organ, and the nave and aisles are fitted with open benches of pitchpine to seat 450. (1) Christ Church at Linton and Castle Gresley was built in 1881. (2) It is still in use as a place of worship [2011]. (3)
