St John the Baptist, Dronfield, is a Grade I listed church in the Diocese of Derby
This church is unusual as the Chancel is larger than the Nave. The church has been enlarged over the years and Soul Architects have been appointed to carry out a major re-ordering project.
A number of reports have been undertaken to move this project forward, including a Statement of Significance to identify areas of importance and areas of opportunity within the church to help to identify where change could happen. We looked at the various ways the church could be adapted or extended to meet the brief and each option was carefully considered and scored against the heritage impact – this information was then used to inform the Design.
Following early discussions with English Heritage, the Church Building Council, SPAB and Derby Diocese we have been able to reach an ‘in principle agreement’ for the size and location of a new building. We are looking to develop the scheme further with continued support and the project team are currently looking at appropriate funding paths
