CHELMORTON locust weather vane

Chelmorton claims to be England's highest parish at 1209 feet above sea level and the highest village in Derbyshire. The church is the highest church with a spire in England.

Unusually the spire weather vane is a golden locust - one of several curiosities in the village.
