It serves a rural community covering around 35 square miles. The Church contains interesting memorials providing details about the history of the Wortley family (the Earls of Wharncliffe). There is a particularly fine memorial by John Flaxman dating from 1808. Another memorial is to Lady Mary Wortley Montague.
