View of St Helen's Church at Darley in Derbyshire. This medieval parish church has a square embattled tower with four pinnacles. Darley is situated 5 miles from Matlock.

In medieval times yew trees were often planted in church yards, yew being the most suitable type of wood to make the English Longbow.
