Noting especially "Ecclesfield Church, St Mary’s, was originally the parish church for Hallamshire, one of the largest parishes in England. In the 17th century it was known as the “Minster of the Moors” because of its then rural situation. Ecclesfield's old village is also home to Whitley Hall, a 16th-century mansion property."
