Full Description

Former grave yard of the former 17th to 19th century Holy Trinity Church, Edale. The irregularly shaped yard is shown on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c1880, south and east of the former 'Holy Trinity Church', which had been replaced by the standing Holy Trinity Church on the west side of the road in 1885. The first chapel at Edale, however, was erected in 1633, and dedicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity. That building became so dilapidated that it was taken down in 1812 and rebuilt in a barn-like style. (1) The latter was demolished in 1883, replaced by the standing building on the opposite side of the road in 1885. (2) An 'old font,' reported to be of 13th century date, is in the northwest corner of the grave yard adjacent to where the former church had been. According to current Google imagery (Streetview) is is now being used as a flower pot. (2-3) A late 17th century sundail is situated near the graveyards southern edge.
