All Saints’ Church, Youlgreave is a Grade I listed parish church in the Church of England in Youlgreave, Derbyshire.


The church dates from the late 12th century, with 14th-, 15th- and 16th-century elements. It was restored between 1869 and 1870 by Richard Norman Shaw. The roofs were completed renewed. A new east window was inserted in the chancel, designed by the Birmingham Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones. The floor of the chancel was raised and laid with encaustic tiles interspersed with bands of stone. The rest of the church was paved with tiles and new heating was installed. The organ was moved to the south aisle, and the old pews were replaced with oak seating. The restoration cost £5,100.
