All Saints Catholic Church, Hassop
All Saints Catholic Church, Hassop
The Roman Catholic Church of All Saints was built in 1816 to a classical design by Joseph Ireland, erected by Anthony James, 4th Earl of Newburgh. Building work is said to have been supervised by Ireland's pupil-clerk J J Scoles.

Hassop Church is said to be modelled on St Pauls at Covent Garden which was designed by Inigo Jones. It has five Grecian side windows and Tuscan pilasters at the back. Stone from a quarry at Baslow was brought to construct the church using the 1765 turnpike road and the cost of the tolls amounted to 10 for the transportation.

A secret passageway is said to exist which links the Church with Hassop Hall opposite.
