The village of Whittington, two-and-a-half miles from Chesterfield, is famed for being the place where the Earls of Devenoshire and Derby, Lord Delamere and John Darcy hatched the plan for revolution in 1688. They conspired to overthrow King James II in favour of William and Mary of the House of Orange.

This church, dedicated to St Bartholomew, was completely rebuilt in 1896 after being destroyed by fire.
