Entries for the Glossop area.


Glossop is a village, township and parish in the hundred of High Peak, 184 miles n.n.w. from London, 50 n.n.w. from Derby, 25 n.w. from Sheffield, and 13 s.e. from Manchester, situated a short distance from the main line of the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway, with which it is connected by a branch of about a mile in length, terminating at Howard’s Town, where there is a handsome covered station. This village, which is populous, and of great manufacturing consequence, is situated on a rising bank, springing from one of the deepest valleys in the Peak. The country around is very pleasing and many of the views may be considered romantic; thriving plantations ornament the home scenery, and the lands in the low grounds are fertile, but the mountainous parts are covered with heath and abound with grouse; the land, however, is gradually becoming cultivated. In Glossop and its adjunct Howard’s Town (which latter has become far more populous and important than its parent village), are numerous establishments for spinning cotton, and the manufacture of various fabrics from that article; for calico printing; also, there is an extensive concern at Dinting Vale, and woollen goods are made to a limited extent; there are besides three paper mills in the neighbourhood. Coal is obtained from mines about three miles hence, and that article is regularly transmitted by the railway. Howard’s Town owes its rapid rise to the extensive manufacture of cotton. The chief establishments belong to Messrs. John Wood and Brothers and Mr. Francis Sumner, whose manufactories are on a scale exceeded by but few in the kingdom. The place, which is comparatively of modern date, now boasts a handsome town hall, a convenient market place, gas works and a commodious railway station. Lord Howard (son of the late Duke of Norfolk) is the owner of the place and lord of the manor, and holds courts leet at Easter and Michaelmas: at the latter period a constable and headborough used to be appointed for the government of the townships, but parochial constables have now superseded the authority of those officers. Glossop is within the jurisdiction of the Tutbury Court of Pleas; but, being also included in the eighth circuit of County Court towns, for the recovery of debts not exceeding £50, the ancient court has become inoperative; the new court is held monthly; and the magistrates for the division assemble in petty sessions once a fortnight. There are two newspapers published weekly on Saturday. Glossop is a polling station at the election of members to represent North Derbyshire. The Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire Railway is carried over Dinting Vale by means of a viaduct of sixteen arches: the centre five are constructed of wooden planks, ingeniously bolted together to form the arch, and resting upon massive stone piers. This viaduct is justly reckoned among the “railway wonders,” and is indeed well worthy the inspection of the curious in these matters.
The parish church of All Saints' is an ancient edifice; the body has been rebuilt, and public worship was performed in it for the first time after the completion of the repairs in September, 1832. In 1856, the late Duke of Norfolk rebuilt the tower at his own expense, and gave two additional bells, making now a peal of eight; the living is a discharged vicarage in the presentation of Lord Fowley and others as trustees; the Rev. Gilbert Charles Jackson is the present incumbent. In the church was a monument by Bacon, to the memory of Joseph Hague, Esq. of Park Hall, near Hayfield, who bequeathed the interest of £1,000 towards clothing twenty-four poor men and women of this and some of the adjacent townships. This monument has been removed to Hayfield. Glossop Hall, the seat of the Right Hon. Lord Edward E. G. Howard, M.P. is near the town. The Roman Catholic chapel, built by the late Duke, is a neat edifice of the Tuscan order, capable of seating six hundred persons. Lord Howard also gave £5,000 towards the erection of the new Roman Catholic chapel at Hadfield, and also a convent for sisters of charity. The late Duke also built extensive school premises, as a Protestant grammar school for boys and girls, with residence for the master; they are substantial and neat buildings in the church yard -he endowed them with £4,000.
On Wednesday, the 30th July, 1834, the neighbourhood of Glossop was visited by a tremendous tempest: the village appeared, at one time, to be enveloped in a continuous blaze of lightning, while the thunder, pealing among the hills, was unusually loud and terrific, and the rain and hail poured down in such quantities as to cause an overwhelming flood, which swept down the valley with impetuous force, carrying devastation, and striking with dismay the inhabitants. Several mills received great injury, and two young women and a child, belonging to one of these works, perished in the flood. Extensive damage was done to the fields, gardens, fences, roads, and bridges, of which last, four were entirely destroyed. A fair for cattle and various commodities is held on the 6th of May. The parish of Glossop contained, in 1851, 28,625 inhabitants, of which the township numbered 5,467.

WHITFIELD is a village, about one mile from Glossop - to which parish it formerly belonged, but in 1844 was constituted a parish under Sir Robert Peel’s act, and now includes Hadfield, part of Padfield, Dinting and Chunal. In 1846 a new church was consecrated for the district, and dedicated to St. James; the living is in the gift of the crown and the Bishop of the diocese alternately: the Rev. John Teague is the present incumbent. A charity school was founded at Whitfield, by the late Mr. Joseph Hague. The population of the new district parish is estimated at 8,000 persons.

Charlesworth, erected into a district parish under the same act that conferred a similar distinction upon Whitfield, &c , was previously a hamlet, in the parish of Glossop, situated three miles from that town. The new church is dedicated to St. John, and the patrons of the living are the same as those of Whitfield; the Rev. Goodwin Purcell is the present incumbent. The population of the new parish is about 3,500.
