St Peter's Church
St Peter's Church
St Peterís Church was built in the 19th century but stands on the site of a 13th century church. Several of the features of the earlier church remain, including the tower and some of the artefacts inside.
Famous railway engineer Sir Nigel Gresley, who lived at Netherseal Hall, is buried in the cemetery. He was Chief Mechanical Engineer of LNER and designed many steam locomotives, including the A1 Pacific 'Flying Scotsman', the first steam locomotive recorded over 100 mph in passenger service, and the A4 Pacific 'Mallard', still holder of the world record 126 mph for a steam locomotive, achieved in 1938.
