Ticknall Parish Church
The Parish Church of St George in Ticknall is an example of the work of Derby architect Henry Isaac Stevens and was built to replace the old church dedicated to St Thomas Becket. It was consecrated by the Bishop of Hereford Rt. Revd. Thomas Musgrave on 6 October 1842. Remnants of the previous church stand in the churchyard, along with a simple medieval cross. The church contains a pipe organ by J.W. Walker dating from 1869. As a church family everyone is assured of a warm welcome at any of our services and community events.
