Edale_080811_0092 Church

The church at Edale is dedicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity and was built in 1885-86 to a design by William Dawes of Manchester. It is aisleless and has a broach spire completed in 1889. A chapel did exist here before but there was a time when villagers has to go to Castleton church and even carry their dead via Hollins Cross to be buried.

 

I went to Edale with the intention of photographing the waterfalls at Grindsbrook but the weather started to turn nasty. I decided to grab a few shots of the church before heading home. I ended up spending about 45min shooting this church from every angle and I was pleased with the results.
