The chapel of St. Giles is an ancient building of grey sandstone, now chiefly in Decorated style, consisting of a chancel, nave, south porch and a western turret containing two bells, cast in 1865 : of the original structure there remain in the nave two very small lights of rude workmanship, one on each side, with circular heads, and there is another in the north wall of the chancel ; these are undoubtedly of pre-Norman work, and must have been where Abbot Briteric gave the church of Stapenhill and its appurtenances to Burton monastery : there are inscribed stones on the floor of the chancel to Elizabeth, daughter of Edmond Sleigh, of Derby, and wife of Collingwood Sanders (1588-1652); to Major Henry Sanders, of London (1552-1616) ; and to Collingwood Sanders, lord of Cauldwell and Ireton (1578-1653), a modern brass to Sir Thomas Gresley bart M.P. d. Dec. 18, 1868 : the east window is stained : the church was renovated in 1843 and restored in 1865, and has 80 sittings.
