St Mary's Church in Cromford, built by Arkwright and opened 1797. The church contains the Arkwright family vaults and features stained glass by the Victorian artist A.O.Hemming.

In the Parish of Cromford, on Mill Lane, sits the Parish Church of St. Mary's. Originally planned as a chapel for Willersley Castle, by Sir Richard Arkwright, St. Mary's was completed five years after Sir Richard Arkwright's death in 1797. In 2002 the church closed for four months while extensive renovation work was carried out, and was re-dedicated by the Bishop of Derby in April 2002.
The Arkwright family are buried in the small graveyard, and Sir Richard Arkwright is buried beneath the chancel.
