St Peter's and the Corve at Diddlebury
The name "Diddlebury" is Old English, perhaps meaning "Duddela's fort" after an otherwise unknown local chieftain.
St Peter's parish church has unusual but distinctive herringbone internal stonework facing to the north wall of the nave from Anglo-Saxon times.
There is a primary school in the village, which takes in pupils from surrounding villages too, called Corvedale CofE. It currently has around 85 pupils.
The civil parish of Diddlebury is large, encompassing land on both sides of the River Corve. Between the River Corve and the Pye Brook, to the east of Diddlebury, lie the ringwork and other remaining earthworks of Corfham Castle. The hamlets of Bouldon and Peaton lie in the east of the parish, along the course of the Pye Brook.
