AllSaints6

The Church of All Saints is all that remains of the medieval village of Kedleston. Dating back to the 12th century, the church is built of sandstone. Having lived at Kedleston for over 700 years, the Curzon family had some of their stunning memorials in the church designed by famous designers including Robert Adam.
