In 1251 Tideswell was granted a market charter which led to a rapid growth in population and prosperity. This early prosperity is demonstrated by its magnificent medieval church, dedicated to St. John the Baptist and often referred to as the ‘Cathedral of the Peak’, which was started and completed in the 14th century – with work halting for the period of the Black Death, in which the the nearby village of Eyam (also referred to as the “Plague Village”) played such a key role. No major external alterations have been made to the church since 1400 and it looks very much the same today as it did 600 years ago. I wanted to create a scene with the light and make it resonate beyond times.
