Researchers assume that the Cathedral of All Saints was founded in the middle of the XIV century on the foundations of another building. It is reliably known that before the start of construction there was a parish church on this site, the first mention of which dates back to the middle of the 10th century. The cathedral is distinguished by a high tower, built in 1510-1530. in the style of perpendicular gothic. The tower is about 65 meters high. However, the area of the cathedral is small - only 1017 sq. m., in view of this, the Cathedral of All Saints in Derby is recognized as the smallest Anglican cathedral in Great Britain. In 1725, large-scale restoration and reconstruction work was carried out, as a result of which the cathedral was significantly rebuilt by the architect James Gibbs, who gave it a classicist appearance. The cathedral's crypt rests members of the aristocratic British Cavendish family, including Elizabeth Talbot, the Countess of Shrewsbury (Bess of Hardwick), Georgiana and Henry Cavendish.
