Full Description

[SK 4430 7147] St. Peter's Church on site of Church [G.T.] (1) The church of St. Peter at Duckmanton is mentioned as early as the reign of Henry II (1154-1189). The benefice of Duckmanton was consolidated with that of Sutton in 1558 and it is supposed that the church was pulled down about that time. Nothing whatever is known of the fabric, except that it was situated in that part of the village known as Long Duckmanton. During the 17th century there are interments in the church of Sutton of residents at Duckmanton, which seems to indicate the disuse of the churchyard as well as the church, although the vicarage house is referred to in a terrier of Duckmanton dated 1612. (2) 'A Chapel of Ease was erected here some years ago and a burial ground of half an acre opposite has been recently laid out at the expense of Mr Arkwright'. (3) The evidence for associating the present church with the site of the medieval church is uncertain. The present church is a 19th century brick and stone building, in use for public worship. No evidence of an earlier church was seen. (4)
