St. Peters Church is a grade I listed building in the village of Edensor, next to the Chatsworth estate in Derbyshire.

The church was built between 1867 and 1870, to replace the original 12th century church that was destroyed when the original village of Edensor was moved out of sight by the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1842. The building work was overseen by the architect Sir George Gilbert Scott.

The pipe organ was added in 1873, by the company Bishop and Son and can be found listed in the National Pipe Organ Register.

Most of the Dukes and Duchess of Devonshire are buried with-in the church and grounds. Kathleen Kennedy, sister to the former U.S President John F. Kennedy is also buried in the grave yard.
