Entries for the area of the Ancient Parish of Glossop.

Glossop is a municipal borough and parish at the north-western extremity of the county, adjoining Cheshire, 14 miles E. from Manchester, 24 N.W. from Sheffield, and 50 miles N.N.W. from Derby. The Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire railway passes through the parish, and has stations at Hadfield and Dinting. From the latter there is a branch line, about one mile in length, into the town of Glossop.
The old parish of Glossop was of vast extent, stretching lengthwise about 16 miles, and from five to eight miles crosswise. It included the townships and hamlets of Glossop, Chinley, Bugsworth and Brownside, Charlesworth, Chisworth, Chunall, Dinting, Hadfield, Hayfield, Ludworth, Mellor, New Mills, Padfield, Simmondley, and Whitfield, covering upwards of 50,000 acres. For the convenience of the few widely scattered inhabitants there were chapels at Charlesworth, Hayfield, and Mellor. These subsequently became parochial, and other parishes have been carved out of it in recent years. The area of the township of Glossop is returned at 18,430 acres, of which about 8,000 acres are moorland.
At the time of the Domesday Survey, Glossop was part of the lordship of Longdendale, which then belonged to the Crown. A few years later Henry I. granted it, with the rest of his extensive domain of the Peak, to William Peverel, but on the attainder of his grandson it reverted to the Crown. In 1157, Henry II. gave the manor and church of Glossop, with all its appurtenances in free and perpetual alms, to the Cistercian Abbey of Basingwerk, in Flintshire. Both manor and church remained in the possession of the abbey till the dissolution of monasteries, when they were bestowed by Henry VIII. upon Francis Talbot, fifth Earl of Shrewsbury. On the death of Gilbert, seventh earl, in 1616, one of his daughters and coheiresses conveyed Glossop in marriage to Thomas Howard, Earl of Arundel, from whom it has descended to the present owner, Lord Howard of Glossop. The noble family of Howard, of the ducal house of Norfolk, claims descent from Hereward, who lived in the reign of King Edgar, whose son, Hereward le Wake, held the Normans at bay when the rest of England had submitted to their rule. The late Lord Howard, second son of the 13th Duke of Norfolk, was deputy Earl Marshall from 1861 to 1868, and was created a peer in 1869. Glossop Hall is a handsome mansion, standing within extensive grounds a little N.E. of Old Glossop.
The town is seated in a valley on the sides of the lofty hills that environ it on all sides. The scenery around is wild and picturesque, and had not commerce seated itself here in later years, Glossop might have become a popular pleasure resort. It was incorporated in 1866, and within the borough boundary are included Dinting, Dinting Vale, Hadfield, Padfield, Simmondley, Waterside, and Whitfield. The borough is divided into three wards, which form a civil parish under the Parish and District Councils Act. Each ward returns six guardians. The rateable value of the borough is £58,884, and the population 22,414. The cotton trade is said to have been introduced here in 1784, but previous to this there were woollen factories and fulling mills. Some of the mills are on a gigantic scale. The Howardtown Mills, belonging to John Wood & Brothers, Ltd., cover 14 acres, and contain 221,000 spindles and 3,500 looms, giving employment to 5,000 or 6,000 persons when in full work. At the Wren Nest Mills, Francis Sumner & Co., Ltd., proprietors, there are 123,000 spindles and 2,541 looms. The Shipley Mill Cotton Manufacturing Co., Ltd., have 43,000 spindles. There are other mills of less magnitude. Another very important industry is the paper manufacture. The paper mills of Messrs. Olive & Partington (sole proprietor, Edward Partington, Esq., J.P.) at Turn Lee, cover several acres of ground and give employment to about 600 hands and a large staff of clerks besides. The machinery is all of the latest and most approved principle, and the machines used in several parts of the process, are the special patent of the firm. The paper is made from wood pulp. The timber is imported from Norway in six feet lengths, and after passing through various processes is reduced to pulp and converted into paper. Upwards of 120 tons of paper are turned out weekly. Another industry that gives employment to a large number of the inhabitants is calico printing ; and a considerable trade is also done in the manufacture of spring mattresses.
Old Glossop is a quaint looking village, picturesquely seated at some height on the hill side overlooking the valley below. Beyond it, stretch heath-clad hills abounding with grouse. New Glossop or Howard Town is situated in the valley, and is sometimes called Glossopdale. Here are located the cotton factories, the shops and business premises, and the great mass of the inhabitants. All the houses and mills are built of stone, and, though some of them date from the early part of this century, they still retain much of their original freshness of colour. A market was established under powers of an Act of Parliament obtained in 1844, and is held on Saturdays. The Town Hall is a handsome building of stone in the Italian style, with covered market behind, erected in 1838 at a cos; of £8,500, and opened as a market on the 19th July, 1845. It was enlarged in 1854. Gas Works were erected the same year by a company with a registered capital of £6,000 in £10 shares; and Water Works were constructed in 1854 by the Duke of Norfolk, at a cost of £4,000. The reservoir, about five acres in extent, is situated at Swineshaw, l½ miles from the town. Fairs for cattle, horses, etc., are held on May 6th, and the first Wednesday after October 10th.
The parish church of All Saints’, at Old Glossop, is a large edifice in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, side aisles, and tower containing eight bells. The old church, having become ruinous, the nave and aisles were rebuilt, and two galleries added in 1831, at a cost of £2,000. The chancel was rebuilt a little later by the Duke of Norfolk, the lay impropriator of the tithes ; and in 1855 his grace rebuilt the tower and spire. The Howard arms are carved in stone above the west doorway of the tower. The Hague monument, now in Hayfield church, was formerly in the chancel of All Saints, from which it was removed when the chancel was rebuilt, and never replaced. The east window, of three lights, is a memorial of the late Duke and Duchess of Norfolk, Robert Shipley, Esq., and John Wood, Esq. Two of the eight bells were added by the parishioners when the tower was rebuilt. Two tablets record feats of bell-ringing : one on the 13th March, 1858, when a peal of Kent Treble Bob Majors of 7,040 changes was rung in 4 hours and 5 minutes; another, on the 7th November, 1863, when a peal of Kent Treble Bob Majors of 5,280 changes was rung in 3 hours and 9 minutes to the memory of Alderman Cubit, chairman of the Cotton Famine Committee. The bells were re-hung in 1877, and a chiming apparatus added at a cost of £180. Old Glossop has also achieved some fame in hand-bell ringing, and three years in succession—1871, 1872, and 1873—the Glossop men carried off the first prize at Belle Vue, Manchester. The living is a vicarage, worth £231, with residence, in the gift of Lord Howard of Glossop, and held by the Rev. A. P. Hamilton Wilson.
Opposite the church gates is an ancient cross, about nine feet high, and still in good preservation.
On an eminence near the hall is the Catholic Church of All Saints, erected by the Duke of Norfolk in 1836, at a cost of £3,000. It is of the Classic style of architecture, with projecting roof and pediment supported on Tuscan pilasters. Above the altar is a painting of St. Jerome, a copy of one in the Vatican at Rome. The windows are filled with stained glass, executed in the highest style of art. St. Andrew, St. David, and St. Patrick are represented. On one window is depicted the Blessed Philip Howard, Earl of Arundel, who, for his adherence to the old faith and for sheltering priests, was fined £10,000, committed to the Tower, and finally sentenced to death, but died in 1595 whilst awaiting execution. On another is Father Nicholas Garlick, a native of Dinting, who suffered death in the reign of Elizabeth for exercising his priestly functions.
The Church of St. Mary occupies a commanding site off St. Mary’s Road, and is without doubt one of the finest Catholic churches in the north of England. It was built by the heirs of the late F. J. Sumner, Esq., J.P., D.L., of Park Hall, Hayfield, and Wren Nest Mills, Glossop. The deceased gentleman died suddenly, intestate, in 1884. Mr. Sumner had often expressed his intention of building a church for the convenience of his co-religionists, and his heirs very generously carried out his intentions. Out of the vast wealth which came unexpectedly into their possession, they set apart the sum of £17,000—£12,000 for the fabric and £5,000 for the endowment. The site was given by Lord Howard, and the plans were prepared by Mr. Dempster, architect, Birmingham. The church is in the Early English style, and consists of chancel, nave, and north and south aisles. The length is 123ft. 6in., and width 60 feet. The nave is separated from the aisles on each side by eight lofty arches with decorated borders. The sanctuary is a pentagonal apse, and on each side is a small chapel, divided by a handsome stone screen. The organ stands in one chapel, the other contains the Lady altar. The high altar is an exquisite piece of sculpture in alabaster, marble, and Caen stone ; and the Caen stone pulpit is of a very handsome design, rich in tabernacle work that harmonises with the altar. The aisles have two-light windows, with tracery heads ; the windows of the chancel and side chapels are of a different design. The west window is divided into six lights by moulded mullions, and the tracery is a combination of all the other windows in the church very ingeniously worked out. The fourteen stations of the Cross chat adorn the walls were executed by Meyer, of Munich. The figures stand out in high relief and are very realistic. Each station was a special gift, and on a brass plate beneath is inscribed the donor’s name. The baptistry is a unique feature in the church. It is a projection under the west window, similar to the apse at the east end, with vaulted ceiling, and lighted by three small cusped windows. The organ is a fine instrument, by Messrs. Gray and Davison, of London. The turret contains one bell, and is surmounted by a spire.
In connection with the church are schools, taught by the Sisters of Charity of St. Paul.
The Wesleyan Chapel at Old Glossop was erected in 1813, and enlarged in 1830. It is a very plain building, capable of seating 500. A second chapel, situated in High Street, Howard Town, was built in 1844, at a cost of £600, and in 1860 it was considerably enlarged, at an expense of nearly £2,000. It contains an excellent organ, by Young, of Manchester. This chapel is the head of the circuit, and in connection with it are good day schools. The Wesleyan Reform Chapel, in Howard Street, was built in 1854, and will seat 700. The Methodist New Connexion Chapel, in Simmondley Lane, is a plain stone building, erected in 1860, at an expense of about £1,000. There is accommodation for 300. Adjoining the chapel are the schools, which cost about £1,300. There are two departments, mixed and infants, with a total accommodation for 100; average attendance, 125. The chapel is in the Staley Bridge circuit. The Congregational Church, Mount Pleasant, is an elegant structure, built in 1868, to seat 650. Schools and classrooms were added in 1875, at a total cost of £3,200. The Gospel Union Mission Hall, in Edison Street, is a substantial building, erected at a cost of £1,000. There is accommodation for 1,000 persons, and only total abstainers are admitted to membership. There are also chapels belonging to the United Methodist Free Church and the Unitarians.
The Grammar School (Old Glossop) was rebuilt by the Duke of Norfolk in 1852, at a cost of £2,000, and endowed by his Grace with £4,000 in the 3 per cent, consols, now £4,200 at 2¾ per cent. It is open to all denominations. There is an efficient staff of teachers; and, in addition to a commercial education, technical instruction, under the scheme of the County Council, is also given.
Few towns of the same magnitude possess such an extensive and beautiful Park as Glossop. The land, about 13 acres in extent, was given by Lord Howard, and Mrs. Wood generously bore the expense of laying out the grounds, &c., which cost about £6,000. The situation is delightful, affording a beautiful prospect of the amphitheatre of hills and moorlands that surround it. The grounds were laid out by Mr. Milner, the eminent landscape gardener, who has produced a very diversified and picturesque effect. A lake, with a miniature island and waterfall, lends additional charms. Facing the main entrance is a beautiful white marble monument, symbolising the principal industry of the town. It represents a factory girl, life-size, holding a shuttle in her hand, whilst beside her are bales of cotton. The granite base forms an ornamental fountain. The monument was erected in 1889, in memory of Daniel and Samuel Wood, Esquires.
At the north-western corner of the Park is the Hospital, erected by D. Wood, Esq., at a cost of £5,000, and endowed by the same benevolent gentleman with £20,000. The premises consist of three blocks, united by a corridor, the ground plan resembling the letter E, the upright line being the corridor. The centre limb contains the apartments and offices belonging to the administrative department, and the other two are the wards for men and women respectively. There is accommodation for sixteen patients. The domestic and sanitary arrangements of the hospital are on the latest and most approved principles. Detached from the hospital are the boiler-house, washhouse, porter's lodge, coachhouse, and stables.
A handsome suite of Baths stands at the southern extremity of the Park. These Baths were the gift of Samuel and Ann Kershaw Wood, who expended about £15,000 on their erection. Architecturally they are quite an ornament to the Park. The swimming bath is 80ft. long by 32ft. wide, and the semicircular roof, at its highest point, is 50ft. above the water. Two fine palm trees give a pleasing effect to the interior. Twenty-seven dressing-boxes are ranged along the side, and in an annexe a small bath is provided, in which each intending bather must wash his feet—a rule most rigorously enforced. There are nine slipper baths, a shower bath, vapour bath, a fully-equipped Turkish bath, and several of the appliances used in hydropathic treatment. The charges are moderate, but the baths do not receive that amount of patronage one would have expected in a manufacturing town.
The Public Hall and Free Library was the gift of H. Rhodes, Esq., of Thorncliffe Hall, Hollingworth, and Captain Partington, of Easton, Glossop, who each contributed £2,000 towards its erection. It is situated at the corner of Fauvel street and Talbot street, on a site presented by Lord Howard. The style of architecture is light and pleasing, resembling the late Gothic work erected
during the reign of James I. The front projection is octagonal, and from one side rises a tower, with pinnacles at each comer and a slated spire. The external walls are faced with parpoints, and the quoins, labels, and strings are surmounted by a very fine parapet in ashlar work. The library and reading room on the ground floor is a large apartment, measuring 72 feet by 36 feet, well lighted, and fitted throughout in pitchpine. Above is the Public Hall, capable of accommodating upwards of 1,000 persons. These several gifts of the Park, Hospital, Baths, and Public Hall were given to the town in commemoration of the jubilee of Queen Victoria, and the memorial stones were laid with great jubilation on the 30th of July, 1887.
Glossop Poor-Law Union comprises the three parishes of Glossop, Charlesworth, and Ludworth and Chisworth, containing 20,781 acres. The Workhouse, which is situated a little above Old Glossop, was erected in 1831, by the lord of the manor, at an expense of £1,500, and has recently been purchased, together with some adjacent land, from Lord Howard for £900. There is accommodation for 144, and there are usually about 85 paupers in the house.
Whitfield is a hamlet and village containing 1,500 acres of land, now included in the borough of Glossop. The land is chiefly freehold. The manor of Whitfield belonged to Thomas le Ragged, who, in 1330, conveyed it to John Foljambe; it has long been held with the manor of Glossop. The Garlicks possessed landed property here in the 15th and 16th centuries. Charlestown and Littlemoor are villages in Whitfield hamlet. A church dedicated to St. James was erected at Littlemoor in 1845 at a cost of £4,500, and a parochial district comprising 3,009 acres was allotted to it. The living is a vicarage worth £270, in the gift of John Wood, Esq., Mrs. S. Wood, and S. H. Wood, Esq., and held by the Rev. H. T. Dudley, M.A. In connection with it are mission rooms in Talbot street and George street. Mr. Joseph Hague, amongst other philanthropic deeds, built and endowed a Charity School at Whitfield in 1778. The Wesleyan Chapel dates from 1810. A commodious Sunday school was built in 1885 at a cost of £1,000, chiefly subscribed by the working men of the district.
Dinting is a hamlet comprising 584 acres of land lying about one mile west of Glossop, but now included in the borough. Here is a station on the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire railway, from which there is a branch line to Glossop. At Dinting Vale are the calico printing works of Messrs. Potter & Co., Ltd. The business was commenced in 1825 by Mr. Potter, who was subsequently M.P. for Carlisle, and was largely instrumental in obtaining the removal of the duties on prints and materials used in their manufacture, thus putting the business of calico printing on a commercial footing. Favoured with water possessing remarkable bleaching qualities, and the employment of the very best skill, the business has steadily increased, the premises have been extended, and to-day the Dinting Vale print-works are the largest in the world. There are 52 printing machines, and about 1,000 workers are employed in the various departments. The distributing centre of the business is in Manchester, with branches in London, Paris, and New York. The firm was converted into a private limited liability company in 1892.
A handsome church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was erected in 1872, the whole cost of which, upwards of £12,000, was defrayed by the Messrs. John, Daniel, and Samuel Wood. The edifice is an elegant Gothic structure, comprising chancel, nave, side aisles, organ chamber, south porch, and a square embattled tower, surmounted by a hexagonal spire. The chancel has a groined roof of polished pitchpine, and is separated from the nave by a lofty pointed arch of granite, and massive pillars of the same material, six on one side and five on the other, divide the aisles from the nave.
The chancel is lighted by three two-light windows, in the eastern gable, the centre one being filled with stained glass in memory of John H. Wood, who died in 1869, and two circular ones in the north and south walls. The windows of the aisles are two lights, and those in the clerestory are in groups of three each. The pulpit is of granite, octagonal in shape and elaborately carved and rests on clustered columns of polished granite, supported by a base of the same material. A brass plate bears the following inscription:—“This pulpit has been erected by the parishioners and friends in loving memory of John Wood, J.P., Daniel Wood and Samuel Wood, J.P., Esqrs., patrons and founders of this church, November, 1888.” The organ is a fine instrument, presented by Mrs. Wood in 1882. The fount is a very handsome one of granite and marble, and elaborately carved. The living, a vicarage, worth £320, with residence, is in the gift of Mrs. S. Wood, S. H. Wood, Esq., and John Wood, Esq., J.P., D.L.
A school was built at the same time as the church for the accommodation of 430 children.
Hadfield is a considerable village and township containing 357 acres of land, lying on the south bank of the river Etherow, and now forming one of the wards of the borough of Glossop. The principal industry is cotton spinning and weaving, which is carried on to a considerable extent in the district. The church, dedicated to St. Andrew, is a handsome edifice of stone consisting of nave, chancel, transept, porch, and belfry containing one bell. On each side of the nave, three or four feet from the wall, is a row of iron pillars from which spring wooden arches that support the roof. The style of architecture is Gothic, and the total cost of the building was £4,174. The organ, which stands in the chancel, is a fine instrument, by Wadsworth Brothers, of Manchester, and cost £650. It was presented by James Sidebottom, Esq., J.P., in 1879, in memory of his wife. The font was presented by James Sherriff, stonemason, formerly sexton at Tintwistle Church, who emigrated to Australia, whence the font came. On one side is inscribed “ St. Paul writeth, according to His mercy God saved us by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost.” On another is' “Jesus said, except a man be born again of water and of the Holy Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” The living is a vicarage worth £260 with residence, in the gift of five trustees, and held by the Rev. J. Hadfield, who is Rural Dean of Glossop.
A school, in which church service was held previous to the erection of the church, was built in 1855 at a cost of £850.
The Catholics also have a church here, dedicated to St. Charles Borromeo, erected by the late Lord Howard. It is a handsome stone structure, consisting of nave, aisles, sanctuary, sacristy, and western tower containing one bell. Built on an eminence, this church has a picturesque appearance, seated amidst shrubberies which are graced here and there with statues, crosses, etc. The style of architecture is Gothic, and the church contains a handsome pulpit, presented by public subscription about a year - ago. The presbytery adjoins the church.
The Wesleyan Chapel, erected in 1878, is a large edifice of stone in the Norman style, seated on the crest of a hill, whence there is an extensive view of the surrounding landscape. It is well lighted by circular-headed windows, and comfortably furnished to seat 900. In connection with the chapel is a Sunday school. The total cost was about £5,000. A day-school was established by the society in 1808, and rebuilt in 1854. There is accommodation for 300 and an average attendance of 180. The United Methodist Free Church is a plain oblong building, lighted by windows of the Gothic type. It was erected in 1876, at a cost of £600, raised by voluntary subscriptions. The Primitive Methodists built their present chapel in 1876. Attached is a burial ground.
The Congregational Church, situated at Brookfield, is a substantial structure of stone, in the Gothic style, erected in 1883,, at a cost of £4,000, part of which was raised by public subscription, and the remainder was a donation from W. Shepley, Esq., J.P.; and the organ, built by J. J. Binns, of Leeds, cost £250, was presented by Mrs. Shepley. All the woodwork is pitchpine, and the windows are filled with stained glass of various designs, geometric, floral, and conventional. There is sitting accommodation for 350 in the body of the church, and a gallery above the entrance will seat 100 more. Adjoining the church is the day school, comprising one large room and seven classrooms, erected in 1888, at a cost of £1,200, defrayed by Mr. Shepley. There is an average attendance of 160.
The Liberal Club is a commodious structure, erected in 1877. The premises Comprise two billiard rooms, a bar, a well stocked library, and a hall measuring about 80 feet by 34 feet, in which lectures, concerts, entertainments, &c., are given. The Conservatives also have their club, erected in 1876.
Building stone of excellent quality is abundant and is extensively quarried at Mouselow, a little east of the village, and an old planting near by is the traditionary site of Mouselow Castle, but not a vestige remains to prove that it ever existed.
Waterside is a manufacturing village on a small brook near the Etherow. Here are the extensive mills of Messrs. T. H. Sidebottom & Co., Ltd., containing 297,000 spindles and 4,800 looms. Mersey Mills, near Etherow, the property of Thomas Rhodes & Co., Ltd., contains 81,000 spindles, and 1,647 looms. The Hadfield Mills, owned by Thomas Rhodes & Son, contain 75,126 spindles and 1,345 looms, and employ about 950 hands in the various departments.
Woolley Bridge is a village that takes its name from the bridge that here crosses the Etherow.
Padfield is a large village and hamlet containing 650 acres of land lying near the Etherow, and included in Hadfield Ward of the Borough of Glossop. The inhabitants are chiefly employed in the cotton mills of Messrs. Edwd. Platt & Son. The Wesleyans have a chapel here, a neat stone structure, built in 1880, at a cost of £2,000, in lieu of one erected in 1828, and the Independents have also a small chapel.

This parish comprises the townships of Charlesworth, and Ludworth and Chisworth, containing 4,000 acres and 2,327 inhabitants. It is in the hundred of High Peak; county court district, petty sessional division, poor law union and deanery of Glossop.
The township of Charlesworth contains 15,261 acres of land lying on the south-west side of Glossop. For the purpose of carrying out the Local Government Act of 1894 eight parish councillors have been assigned to Charlesworth, and the township divided into two wards, No. 1 Ward comprising Charlesworth parliamentary polling district, and No. 2 Ward the rest of the parish. The former elects two guardians and two district councillors, and the latter one of each.
Charlesworth, at the time of the Domesday Survey, was known as Cheveneswrde, and then formed part of the crown lands. In 1294 Peter de Charlesworth died seized of certain lands in this township and elsewhere in the parish of Glossop, which he held for the Abbot of Basingwerke. In 1308 Robert de Charlesworth gave to the said abbot 80 acres of arable land in Charlesworth, in addition to smaller endowments in Simondley and Chunal. In consequence of this gift, the abbot established a grange here, in which resided one or more monks of the order, whose duty was to look after the interests of the monastery. He also erected a chapel, dedicated to St. Mary Magdalen, which was probably at first served by one of the monks from the grange. In 1329 the abbot obtained the royal permission so establish a market at Charlesworth on Wednesdays, and a yearly fair to be held on the festival of the patron saint of the chapel.
Local tradition assigns another origin to the chapel. According to this legend, a traveller on his way from Manchester to London was benighted, and lost his way on the Charlesworth moors. Unable to proceed, he prayed to God and the Virgin Mary for protection, and vowed that, if he were delivered from his danger, be would build a chapel on the spot. Scarcely had the vow been uttered when a shepherd passing that way found him, and conveyed him to a neighbouring house. He accomplished his journey in safety, and on arriving at his home in Ireland, he made an oak--timbered roof, brought it over to England, and, in fulfilment of his vow, built the chapel on the brow of Charlesworth hill. Popular traditions have substratum of truth in them, and it is possible that the old chapel may have been restored as a thank-offering by some traveller who had been providentially saved whilst crossing these moors.
The monks of Basingwerke retained possession of the land till the Reformation, and their memory is perpetuated in an old road over the hill, which is, to this day, known as Monk's Road.
In the early years of the reign of Henry VIII. a chantry was founded in the chapel of Charlesworth by William Wolley, of Riber. in the parish of Matlock, who left certain lands in Chesterfield, Newbold, Tapton, and Dronfield—which lands had been given to him by Ralph Heathcote, bell-founder, of Chesterfield—to provide a priest to say mass for his soul. This endowment escaped the lynx-eyed commissioners who drew up the chantry roll; but shortly afterwards, in the second year of Elizabeth, the land was taken from the chapel and conferred on Sir George Howard. The chapel also appears to have been transferred with the land to the Howards and as they remained firm in their attachment to the old faith it is probable that no effort was made either to preserve the fabric or to provide for the performance of the reformed service. The parliamentary commissioners of 1650, report of Charlesworth that it is fit to be disused and the place united to Glossop. from which it would seem that it was then occasionally used for service, which at that time was Presbyterian.
After the Restoration of the monarchy, the chapel was allowed to remain in the hands of the Presbyterians by the Howards, who themselves, under the severe penalties of a cruel and unjust law, could only hear mass by stealth, when some priest in disguise secretly visited their mansion. The Presbyterians subsequently became identified with the Independents, and at a later period they became known as Congregationalists. In 1797 the chapel was entirely rebuilt, and not a trace of the original edifice now remains. Several small endowments have been left to this chapel for the benefit of the dissenting minister, and, should there be no dissenting minister, the said endowments are to be applied to the poor or to educate children. In connection with the chapel is a school, with accommodation for 250, and an average attendance of 99.
The parish church, dedicated to St. John Baptist, was erected in 1849, at a cost of £2,700. It is a cruciform structure, comprising nave, chancel, north and south transepts, and tower, but possesses no architectural beauty. The living is a vicarage, worth £180 yearly with residence, in the gift of the Crown and the Bishop of Southwell alternately, and held by the Rev. G. W. Collins, M.A. A commodious National School, with master’s house, was erected in 1850, at an outlay of £530. There are 63 names on the books, and an average attendance of 44.
The Particular Baptists have a chapel, erected in 1835 at a cost of about £700. It will seat 300.
The village, which is of considerable extent and once had its market, is situated on the Marple road, two miles S.W. from Glossop and one mile from Mottram station, on the M., S. & L. railway. There are two extensive manufactories of rope, twine, and cotton banding. Hole House Mill is the property of James Rowbottom, and the same firm carry on cotton doubling at Chew Wood Mill, Chisworth, and cotton spinning at Hurst Mill, Glossop. Messrs. John Booth & Son employ a considerable number of hands in the manufacture of cotton bands, ropes, and twines.
About a mile N.W. from Charlesworth is the hamlet of Gamesley, comprising several farms extending to the borders of Cheshire. Here are the vestiges of a Roman camp, known as Melandra Castle, from which a Roman road led over the moors to the station at Brough.
Ludworth and Chisworth forms a joint township containing about 2,550 acres of land, belonging chiefly to Lord Howard of Glossop. Under the Parish and District Councils Act, Ludworth and Chisworth form a parish divided into two wards—Ludworth and Chisworth—each co-extensive with its own highway district. The former ward returns three guardians and three rural district councillors, and the latter one guardian and one rural district councillor. There are eight parish councillors.
Marple Bridge is a thriving village on the banks of the river Goyte, which here divides Derbyshire from Cheshire. The scenery in the district is very attractive, and the village is much frequented by pleasure seekers, The Congregational Church is a handsome structure in the Perpendicular Gothic style, built in 1887, at a cost of about £3,000. The old chapel, built in 1787, is now used as a Sunday school and for technical educational purposes, and is known as the Congregational Hall. The first chapel was erected shortly after the passing of the Act of Uniformity in 1662, through the labours of the Rev. Win. Bagshaw, the Apostle of the Peak, one of the 2,000 ministers ejected from the Church of England. The Catholic Church, dedicated to St. Mary, was erected by Lord Howard, in 1859. It possesses few architectural pretentions, but the interior decorations are handsome. A lofty Gothic arch separates the chancel from the nave, and on either side is a smaller arch leading to a side chapel. These arches spring from clustered granite columns, and spanning the central one is an alabaster screen elaborately sculptured. The decorated walls and roof of the chancel are rich in gold and colour. On the north wall is represented the Ascension, and on the opposite side the Annunciation. Behind the altar is an oil painting of considerable merit, representing Christ restoring sight to the blind man. The windows are filled with stained glass, exhibiting full length figures of various saints ; and handsome statues of Our Lord and the Blessed Virgin Mary stand on pedestals on either side of the sanctuary. The decorations cost £1,400. In connection with the church is a day school, attended by about 50 children. The Primitive Methodists have a chapel on Compstall-road, rebuilt in 1893, at a cost of £1,800. It is a handsome building of stone, with a Sunday school on the ground floor. Attached is a burial ground.
Lane Ends, Holly Bank, Limefield, and Mill Brow are small villages in Ludworth.
Chisworth is a scattered village and hamlet, four miles S.W. from Glossop. A Wesleyan Chapel was erected here in 1891, at a cost of £1,000. It is a handsome edifice in the pure Gothic style; the interior is bright and cheerful, and elegantly furnished throughout in pitch pine. There are several stained-glass windows on each side, which admit a flood of tinted light. Attached is a small graveyard, in which lie the remains of James Coope, one of the founders of the society.
Compstall Road is a considerable village on the Derbyshire side of the river Etherow, which is here crossed by a bridge, on the other side of which is Compstall in Cheshire.

This is an extensive township and chapelry in the wide-spreading parish of Glossop, containing 7,919 acres of land, and 2,856 inhabitants. Its rateable value is £13,692. For all civil purposes it forms a district parish, and is the head of a poor law union. The Duke of Devonshire is lord of the manor, and Francis John Sumner, Esq., Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, is the principal landowner. There are many small freeholders. Under the new Local Government Act eight parish councillors have been assigned to Hayfield, and five district councillors.
The district is of a wild alpine character; moorland eminences, scantily covered with vegetation, and hills of considerable altitude are plentifully scattered about. On the eastern border rises Kinder Scout, the culminating point of the Peak range. Its summit is occupied by a flat, boggy tableland, only a trifle short of 2,000 feet above the sea level. The sides of the hill are deeply furrowed by numerous romantic ravines, locally called cloughs, through which streams flow, forming picturesque waterfalls. “A great part of Kinder Scout and the adjoining moors,” says the Guide, “were, until lately, what is known as the ‘King’s Land,’ over which the public might ramble at their pleasure; but about the year 1830, the whole of these lands were surveyed, and allotted to the various owners of contiguous lands according to the size of their holdings.” Access to the hill is now prohibited, though it was formerly open to the public.
The romantic village of Hayfield is prettily seated on the north bank of the Sett, 4½ miles N. from Chapel-en-le-Frith, 11 miles from Stockport, and is the terminus of a branch of the Midland railway.
The church, dedicated to St. Matthew, consists of chancel, nave, with side aisles, and tower at the west end, containing a peal of six bells. Above a low doorway, on the north side, is preserved the date of the original erection “1386.” The chapel having become very ruinous, the inhabitants, in 1814, obtained a Brief for its restoration, and with the funds thus obtained, supplemented by the contributions of the parishioners, the chapel was rebuilt on the foundations of the old one, at a cost of £2,000. The building was completed in 1818. The new floor was raised several feet, and the pillars of the side aisles were shortened to about six feet to act as props for the timbers that support it. The church is in the Gothic style, but display's the absence of taste that characterizes the buildings of the early part of this century. The tower was rebuilt a few years previously in 1793, and contains a peal of six bells. In 1894 it was raised about 11 feet to receive a clock with four dials. The interior of the church is galleried round. The aisles are lighted by stained glass windows, and there is a very handsome one of three lights in the chancel. The brass lectern is of a very elaborate and beautiful design.
The interior was thoroughly cleaned and beautified in 1892, and the communion table enlarged and furnished with a handsome altar cloth, altar cross, and flower vases, at an expense of £200. At the east end of the south aisle is a handsome mural monument, inscribed:—“Sacred to the Memory of Joseph Hague, Esq., whose virtues as a man were as distinguished as his character as a merchant. Favour’d with the blessings of Providence, he enjoy’d the fruits of his industry at an early period, and by the most indefatigable pursuits and extensive connections in trade acquired an immense fortune, which he distributed amongst his relatives with such liberality as to give affluence to all in his own lifetime. He was born at Chunall, in this parish, in the year 1695, and in 1717 settled in London, where he married Jane, the only daughter of Edmund Blagge, of Macclesfield, in Cheshire, by whom he had 10 sons and 2 daughters, who all died in their minority. He built and endowed the Charity School at Whitfield, in the year 1778, and died at Park Hall, in this parish, on the 12th day of March, 1786, aged 90 years, leaving the annual interest on £1,000 to be be laid out in clothing 12 poor men and 12 poor women out of the eight townships of Glossop Dale for ever; besides other charities bequeathed to Glossop and the chapelry of Heafield.” Surmounting the monument is an admirable bust of Joseph Hague, executed by the eminent sculptor, John Bacon. The worthy merchant was buried in Glossop church, and there this monument was originally erected ; but when the chancel was rebuilt by the Duke of Norfolk the Hague memorial was placed for safety in one of the cells of the Lock-up, where it was allowed to remain neglected after the completion of the work. One night a drunken man, confined in the adjoining cell, broke through the partition wall and mutilated the tablet, but the bust, which was carefully packed in straw, fortunately escaped without injury. When this piece of vandalism reached the ears of Captain White, of Park Hall, who had inherited a considerable share of the Hague property, he took possession of the monument, and caused it to be erected in Hayfield Chapel, where it is the principal object of attraction. There are a few other memorials of departed worth.
The living is a perpetual curacy worth £180, in the gift of the resident freeholders, and held by the Rev. R. R. Ricketts since 1877. John Hyde, by will dated 8th September, 1604, gave certain premises to the Merchant Taylors’ Company, London, upon trust, amongst other things, to pay £10 yearly to the minister of the Gospel at Hayfield, in Derbyshire, “ keeping a Grammar School within the chapel.” The parsonage was erected in 1869 at a cost of £1,200, raised partly by public subscription.
The National School was built in 1830, at a cost of £461, raised by subscription. An infants’ room and other additions were made in 1879, at an expense of £500. There is a total accommodation for 229, and there are 200 names on the books. The school possesses an endowment of £26 per annum.
The Wesleyan Chapel is a substantial stone edifice, erected in 1782, and opened by John Wesley. It was re-roofed in 1839, and enlarged in 1868. A gallery is carried round three sides, increasing the accommodation to 350. The style is quasi-Norman. In the centre is a bell turret surmounted by a ball. Adjoining the chapel is the Day School, built in 1884, at a cost of about £1,000. There are two large rooms for seniors and infants, and two class-rooms, having a total accommodation for 300. The average attendance for the past year was 64.
The Free Church Methodist Bethel was rebuilt in 1866, on the site of a former chapel, at an expense of upwards of £1,000. There are two storeys—chapel above and school below—with sitting accommodation for 400. The interior is neatly furnished in pitchpine. An organ was added in 1874 at a cost of £200.
The Primitive Methodist Chapel is a good stone building flanked by buttresses, erected in 1867 at a cost of about £500, including the adjoining class-room. There is accommodation for about 400.
A School Board was formed in 1881, but was practically a school attendance committee till 1888, when they erected a Board School, at a cost of £1,300. There are two departments, with accommodation for 183.
There is nothing attractive in the appearance of the little town. The houses are all built of stone, with no pretensions whatever to architectural display; the streets are narrow, and not too well paved. The manufacture of cotton and wool was introduced at an early period. Formerly a good deal of twine was made at Hayfield ; and the late Wright Turner, Esq., an influential Manchester merchant and twice mayor of Salford (1864-5 and 1865-6), began his career here in the making of twine. There is abundance of coal, and also a copious supply of excellent water, which afford great facilities for manufacturing purposes. A cotton mill has been carried on at Little Hayfield, a small village three-quarters of a mile distant, for upward of a century. There are the two extensive paper mills of John Slack, and three printworks, employing a considerable number of hands. Stone is abundant, and extensively quarried at Birches Quarry, Hadfield Bank, and Watery Hey.
The Liberals and Conservatives have each a club in the village, with comfortably fitted-up reading and billiard rooms. In the Antiquarian Tea Rooms the visitor will see many curious articles and relics of antiquity. Fairs for sheep and cattle are held on the 12th of May and the 10th of October, and Shepherds’ Meetings, on the 12th of July and 7th of November, at the Pack Horse. The Feast is held the first Sunday on or after September 19th.
Hayfield Poor Law Union comprises the townships of Hayfield, New Mills, Mellor, and Disley, containing 17,085 acres and 12,873 inhabitants. The Workhouse, situated at Low Leighton, was erected in 1841, at a cost of £2,700, to accommodate 87 inmates.
Little Hayfield is a small village about three-quarters of a mile north. The Primitive Methodists have a chapel here, built in 1851, at a cost of about £200. Clough Mill, the property of Edward Platt & Son, cotton manufacturers, Hadfield, has been in operation about a century. There are 18,000 spindles, and about 300 hands are employed.
At Birch Vale, one mile west of Hayfield, are the extensive calico printing works of Messrs. John Bennett & Sons, erected in 1851, which give employment to about 500 men, women, and children. The business of bleaching and sizing cotton yarns is carried on in a portion of the works by C. E. Bennett & Co., who employ about 80 hands. Here, at Birch View, is a chapel belonging to the Free Church Methodists, built in 1873 at a cost of £750.
Park Hall is a large mansion pleasantly embosomed amongst a dense mass of wood, about one mile north of Hayfield. It was the property and residence of Joseph Hague, Esq., in the later years of his life, from whom it descended to the late Captain White. It was purchased by the late Francis James Sumner, Esq., of Glossop, and now belongs to Francis John Sumner, Esq., of Leamington.
The township of Hayfield consists of three hamlets, viz. :—Great Hamlet, which includes a large portion of the village of Hayfield ; Phoside or Foreside Hamlet occupies the southern portion of the township, and Kinder Hamlet the eastern side.

Form a joint township in the ecclesiastical parish of Glossop, and Chapel-en-le-Frith Union. Under the Local Government Act of 1894 they constituted a civil parish, with a council of seven members, for the management of parochial affairs. The total area is 3,835 acres, rateable value £9,911, and the population in 1891 was 1,542. The land belongs to several proprietors, the following being the largest owners:—Rev. F. Gawthorn, Joseph C. Braddock, John Braddock, Joseph Broadhurst, Christopher Slack, Mrs. Goodman, Mrs. Hadfield, W. H. G. Bagshawe, J.P., John Hadfield, John Drinkwater, and William Hadfield.
The surface is roughly broken into bold eminences, the highest of which— Chinley Churn—attains an elevation of 1,493 feet above the sea-level. Crowning the summit are the remains of a Roman camp, from which a magnificent view of the surrounding country is obtained.
Chinley is a village and extra parochial liberty, situated about 2½ miles N. by W. from Chapel-en-le-Frith, and near the station of its own name, on the Manchester branch of the Midland railway The village is small, and possesses nothing of interest except the old Nonconformist Chapel built in 1711. The congregation was originally formed through the efforts of the Rev. Wm. Bagshaw, better known as “ The Apostle of the Peak,” who died in 1702. A few charities connected with the chapel are thus noticed on a Benefaction Board:—(1) Thos. Moult, of Chinley Maze, departed this life on 16th May, 1751, and left £5 to be put out to interest, and the interest arising from it to go towards repairing this place. (2) Samuel Wood, of Bowden Hall, died 15th April, 1764, and left £200 to be put out to interest for charitable purposes, yearly, for ever, and to be divided equally into four parts—1st, in bread amongst poor widows and fatherless children belonging to Chapel-en-le-Frith; 2nd, in bread at Chinley Chapel every Sunday to similar persons; 3rd, in woollen cloths to the poor of Bowden Edge; 4th, to the minister of Chinley Chapel for permitting six poor widows free sitting on the north side of such chapel for ever. This charity commenced the 5th day of May, 1765.
The Wesleyans have a chapel at New Smithy, and a Preaching Room at Four Lane Ends.
Bugsworth is a village and hamlet three miles N. from Chapel-en-le-Frith, and ten miles from Glossop. Coal underlies the district; it is excellent for lime burning, and is largely worked for that purpose. For the convenience of the inhabitants a chapel was erected in 1874 and dedicated to St. James. It is a, handsome edifice, in the Gothic style, capable of seating 280 persons, and consists of chancel, nave, porch, and belfry, containing one bell. The three windows in the east end are filled with stained glass. The Rev. James Bower is the curate-in-charge. The Primitive Methodists and Congregationalists have chapels here. The former built in 1878, at a cost of £1,300, is a large stone edifice in the Gothic style. The services are conducted by local preachers.
Brownside comprises the hamlets of Upper Fold and Shireoaks. The land is elevated, but yields good crops of grass.
The educational affairs of the parish are managed by a School Board, by whom commodious schools have been erected, at Chinley and Bugsworth.

This is a parish in the High Peak hundred, Hayfield county council electoral division, union and rural district; county court district of Hyde, Cheshire, petty sessional division and deanery of Glossop, comprising an area of 2,353 acres, rateable value £5,736, and population 1,096. Under the new Local Government Act seven parish councillors have been assigned to Mellor, and three district councillors. The landowners are Jonas Craven, Esq., J.P., Mellor Hall, who is lord of the manor; Jonathan Jowett, Esq., Lower Hall, Mellor; Frederic Charles Arkwright, Esq., Willersley, Cromford ; Lord Howard of Glossop; Lord Egerton, and a number of small freeholders. The soil is clayey, and is chiefly laid down in grass. Most of the inhabitants are employed in the cotton mills and collieries.
The early owners of the manor were the Mellors, descended from a younger son of Simon de Montford, from whom it passed by marriage to the Radcliffes. In 1686 the ancient seat of the family was bought by James Cheetham, Esq. In 1797 the estate was again sold, the appointment of the minister having already been bought by Mr. Thornton, of Clapham.
The village is pleasantly situated on the Hayfield and Stockport road, about eight miles S.W. from Glossop, and seven miles from Stockport. The Church, dedicated to St. Thomas, was, with the exception of the tower, rebuilt about 70 years ago, when little attention was bestowed on ecclesiastical architecture. The Gothic tower has been recently repaired, the old pews replaced by open seats of pitchpine, and the chancel furnished with carved oak stalls and sedilia, and the walls lined with carved oak panelling. Galleries on the south and west sides of the nave increase the accommodation, but do not improve the internal appearance. The east window is inscribed :—“ To the Glory of God and to commemorate the confirmation by the Lord Bishop of Lichfield of Mary Beatrice and Margaret, daughters of Frederick and Mary Anne Cooper, of West Tower, Marple, July, 1874.” A curious old font stands in a recess at the west end. It is circular, cut out of a block of sandstone, and ornamented with three quaintly incised figures of strange proportions. One represents a human figure on horseback, but what it was intended to symbolize it is impossible to say. Another relic of the old church is a beautifully carved oak pulpit, of which Dr. Cox gives a drawing in his “Churches of Derbyshire.” The living is a vicarage, worth £140 yearly, in the gift of and held by the Rev. T. M. Freeman since 1859.
The United Methodist Free Church is a neat, substantial stone building with gabled front, erected in 1846. It is well lighted with semicircular-headed windows, and comfortably furnished with pews of painted wood. The chapel, with the gallery, affords accommodation for 250.
The Primitive Methodist Chapel, built in 1827, and situated in Mellor Moor End, is a plain, oblong stone structure with accommodation for about 200 worshippers.
The earliest provision for educational purposes was made by Thomas Walklate, who died in 1639. In accordance with his will a Free Grammar School was erected in the churchyard, and the premises were rebuilt in 1806. This building was taken down in 1880, and a new school erected on another site without the churchyard, by the School Board, to which the endowment, about £20 yearly, has been transferred.
Mellor Hall, the seat and property of Jonas Craven, Esq., J.P., is a handsome cut-stone mansion, nestling amidst a profusion of luxuriant trees on an eminence overlooking the Marple Valley. It is lighted by pendicular stone-mullioned and square-headed windows. On an adjoining building are these initials : I C (James Cheetham) 1688.
We may mention two very praiseworthy institutions located here. One is a holiday home for girls employed in mills ; the other is “The Manchester Cathedral Cottage Home,” for invalids of both sexes belonging to the Church of England.
Part of the hamlet of Brook Bottom is situated in this parish.

New Mills is an extensive modern parish, containing 4,890 acres of land, lying on the border of Cheshire, from which it is separated by the river Goyt. It is in the hundred of High Peak, police district of Chapel-en-le-Frith and Glossop; county council electoral division of New Mills; county court district of Buxton; union of Hayfield, and deanery of Glossop. The total rateable value of the parish is £21,899, and the population in 1891 was 5,498. The Duke of Devonshire, F. J. Sumner, Jonathan Jowett, Lord Egerton, Turner and Brentnall, Joseph Handfield, and Mrs. John Mackie are the principal landowners. The Duke of Devonshire is lessee of the manor from the Duchy of Lancaster.
New Mills is under the control of an urban parish council whose district also includes Beard, Ollersett, Thornsett, Whittle, and Newtown. The latter is situated on the Cheshire side of the river and, under the Parish and District Councils Act, forms a separate urban parish returning one guardian. New Mills parish, embracing the rest of the urban sanitary district, returns five guardians.
The village of New Mills, or we might say the busy little town, is situated on the bank of the river Goyt, from which the houses and factories rise tier above tier on the hill side to a considerable height. It is eight miles from Stockport, 11 miles from Buxton, and 43 miles from Derby. It is skirted by the Manchester and Derby branch of the Midland railway, and the London & North-Western line approaches within a mile. The church, dedicated to St. George, was erected in 1831, at a cost of £2,500. It is a handsome Gothic edifice comprising nave, chancel, side aisles, and a pinnacled tower surmounted by a lofty octagonal spire, but the interior aspect is somewhat disappointing. The chancel is lighted by three tall single-light lancet windows which have been filled with stained glass at the expense of Mrs. Mackie. Windows of the same character, seven on each side, light the nave and aisles. Two on the north side bear representations of our Saviour and St. John the Baptist, and Moses and Aaron. On a brass is inscribed “In memory of the Rev. John Rigg, M.A., vicar of New Mills for 20 years, who finished his work November 10th, 1868, aged 56 years. His parishioners and friends have placed these windows to record their appreciation of his labours.” Two on the south side are also memorials. On the north wall of the nave, under the gallery, is a marble tablet inscribed “In memory of James Ingham, Esq., J.P., of Watford villa, New Mills, who departed this life, May 8th, 1868, aged 67 years,” and on a brass underneath is “ The above tablet was erected by his neighbours and friends in acknowledgement of the liberal support he rendered to this church, and the Bequest of £500 contained in his will, the interest of which is paid towards educating and clothing the poor of this parish.” The Font, which stands in the middle of the nave, is a beautiful piece of sculpture, erected by the parishioners and tenants of Lord Egerton’s estate in Lancashire, in memory of John Taylor, J.P. The living is a vicarage, worth £300 yearly, with residence, in the gift of the Vicar of Glossop, and held by the Rev. F. W. Newman, M.A.
The Church schools form a pretty block of stone buildings, with teacher’s residence attached. There are two departments, mixed and infants, with an average attendance of 220.
The chapel-of-ease, dedicated to St. James the Less, and the almshouses to which it is attached, were erected in 1880, by the late John Mackie, Esq., J.P., and Mary his wife, in memory of the parents of the latter—the late Mr. and Mrs. Ingham. The edifice consists of nave and apsidal chancel, and is in the style of architecture that prevailed in the latter part of the 13th century. In the apse are three lancet windows, filled with stained glass from the studio of Mr. Kempe, Beaumont street, London. A three-light window, with traceried head, in the south wall, and two large two-light windows in the west wall, are also pictorial. Frescoes by Mr. Powell, of Leeds, illustrating events in the life of Our Lord, adorn the north wall. A beautiful marble panel has been placed on the same side by Mrs. Mackie, in memory of her late husband. The total cost of the church was £2,750.
The Ingham Almshouses consist of six handsome cottages of stone, containing a good sitting-room, a bedroom, and a small scullery. The houses are divided by a covered porch, with pointed arches resting on circular pillars, with sculptured capitals. In front is a beautifully laid-out piece of garden ground. The church and almshouses occupy two sides of a quadrangular plot of land adjoining Spring Bank.
The Catholic Church, dedicated to St. Mary, occupies a commanding situation in High Lee. It is a handsome edifice of stone, in the Decorative Gothic style, erected in 1845-6 at a cost of £4,000, and comprises sanctuary with a chapel on either side, nave, north and south aisles, south porch, and western tower surmounted by a spire. The interior aspect is solemn and impressive. The arcade on either side of the nave rests on low, massive, octagonal columns ; and the noble chancel arch springs from similar responds. The east window is a three-light one, filled with stained glass representing scenes from sacred history. Beneath this is the high altar, a very fine one of alabaster and stone, given by Mr. Denis Lane, of London. Statues of various saints adorn the walls, as well as a very fine set of stations of the Cross, in high relief and richly coloured, against a back ground of gold. In connection with the church is a day school, attended by about 80 children.
The Wesleyan Chapel, in St. George’s road, erected in 1813, is a good stone building, seated on an eminence and approached by a flight of 24 steps. A gallery is carried round three sides, which increases the accommodation to 340. The chapel is provided with an excellent organ, built by Hardy, of Manchester, at a cost of £400. Adjoining the chapel is a small cemetery. There is a large day school in connection with the chapel, situated in High street. The Congregational Church, in Chapel street, is a substantial building of cut stone, with Sunday school and classrooms on the basement, erected in 1823. A gallery surrounds it on three sides. The interior is furnished with open pews of pitchpine to seat 500. There is another church belonging to the same sect in Thornsett. The United Methodist Free Church, Spring Bank, erected in 1892, at a cost of about £2,700, is a spacious structure, lighted by semicircular-headed windows, and is furnished throughout in polished pitchpine. There is sitting accommodation for 450. A handsome organ stands in a deep recess in the western gable, beneath which is the rostrum upon an elevated platform. Adjoining the church is the Sunday school, comprising one large room and four classrooms.
The Primitive Methodists have a chapel in Spring Bank, built in 1876 at a cost of £2,700. It is a substantial edifice of stone in an attractive style of architecture, and is furnished with open pews of pitchpine to seat 350. On the basement are the Sunday school and classrooms. They have another chapel in Thornsett, built in 1867 at a cost of £2,900.
A School Board of seven members was formed in 1876, and handsome and capacious schools have been erected at Spring Bank, Hague Bar, and Thornsett. In addition to providing an excellent elementary education, the Board has established a technical department under the scheme of the Derbyshire County Council.
The town has its Public Hall and its Victoria Market Hall. The former was erected in 1870, by public subscription, at a cost of over £2,000. The latter is private property. There are several cotton mills, calico printing works, engineering works, engraving works, and chemical works.
This district was formerly known as Middlecale, and embraced a number of hamlets extending from Kinderscout to the banks of the Goyt. In accordance with manorial privilege all the inhabitants were compelled to grind their corn at the common mill at Hayfield. About a century and a half ago a re-arrangement of the hamlets took place, three being added to Chinley, three to Hayfield, and the remainder, Beard, Ollersett, Thornsett, and Whittle, were formed into a township. A new mill was built on the river Sett, in the hamlet of Ollersett, and hence arose the name New Mills.
Beard is a hamlet extending southwards from New Mills. The surface is beautifully diversified by hill and dale, and richly wooded. Hague Bar is a small village on the Marple road. From the rising ground to the right there is a beautiful view of the country on the Cheshire side of the river Goyt. Ollersett hamlet stretches eastward from New Mills. Low Leighton is a small village between New Mills and Hayfield. Here is the Hayfield Union Workhouse. Here also is a Friends’ Meeting House, erected in 1717, though there are no resident Friends in the village. Coal and gritstone are worked in the district. Thornsett hamlet extends N.E., and contains a portion of New Mills, including the Parish Church, Congregational Chapel, Garrison Bleach Works, &c. Coal is worked on a small scale. At the eastern extremity of the hamlet on the border of Hayfield parish is Lantern Pike—a hill of considerable altitude, commanding from its summit an excellent bird’s-eye view of the surrounding district. A portion of Birch Vale extends into Thornsett hamlet. Birch Vale House, the property and residence of Thomas Bennett, Esq., J.P., is a substantial structure, pleasantly situated on rising ground above the river Sett. It is surrounded by four acres of pleasure grounds.
Rowarth is a scattered village in this hamlet, a little N.W. of Lantern Pike. It was once a busy little place, and could boast three or four cotton mills, but the only industry now is a bleachworks. There is a United Methodist Free Church. On a stone above the door is inscribed “ Sunday school for children of all denominations, A.D. 1824.”
Whittle is another hamlet in this township, extending N. and N.W. from New Mills.
