St John the Baptist, Boyleston, Derbyshire

A long path leads up behind the village hall to the church which is otherwise hidden from view by large trees. Quirky little SW tower of 1844 with an insignificant doorway which is the main entrance to the church. There is a south aisle to its east with Dec windows, but the nave extends further west of the tower and has a variety of windows. Low seemingly long chancel is also C14 but has a Perp east window. Pretty interior with a lot of charm but without much of particular interest. There is an empty tomb recess on the north side of the sanctuary.
