CHAPEL-EN-LE-FRITHis a parish and small market and union town and head of a county court district, 6 miles north from Buxton and 166 from London by road, in the High Peak division of the county, hundred of High Peak, head of a petty sessional division, rural deanery of Buxton, archdeaconry of Derby and diocese of Southwell. The London and North Western and the Midland railways have stations here; the former is three quarters of a mile from the town. The Dore and Chinley branch of the Midland railway, now (1891) in course of construction, will be 20 miles in length and will give direct communication between Dore (on the Sheffield and Ambergate branch) and Chinley and Milton (near Chapel-en-le-Frith, on the Manchester and Ambergate branch); it will pass through Hathersage, Hope, Castleton and Edale, passing over a fine viaduct at Chinley and through two very long tunnels, one at Totley 3¾ miles in length, and one at Cowburn 2⅟10 miles long: the engineers are Messrs. Parry and Storey of Derby and Nottingham. The Peak Forest tramway, for the conveyance or minerals and goods only, passes through the town. The town is supplied with water from springs rising in Combs Moss, a hill about one mile to the south-east ; the water is stored in a reservoir and conveyed to the town in pipes by the Chapel-en-le-Frith Water Company. The town is lighted with gas from works on the north side of the town, the property of the Chapel-en-le-Frith Gas Company. The church of St. Thomas à Becket is a building of stone, chiefly of modern date, with the exception of the chancel, which dates from 1224, it consists of chancel, nave of three bays, aisles, south porch and a western tower with pinnacles, containing a clock and 6 bells: there are several mural tablets to the Bagshawe family, dating from 1628 to 1818, and stones in the churchyard dating from 1662. The registers date from the year 1620, and are in good preservation. The living is a vicarage, average tithe rent-charge £11, with 75 acres of glebe, gross yearly value £297, with residence, in the gift of such of the parishioners as are assessed to poor rates. There are Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels, the former being a stone building with a turret, in the Decorated style : there is also a Wesleyan Methodist chapel at the Combs. The Town Hall, a large building of stone, erected in 1851, at the sole expense of the late Thomas Slack esq. M.D. and enlarged in 1882, contains suites of rooms wherein the County Court and magistrates' meetings are held; the net receipts from rents of this building were left by Dr. Slack for the benefit of three schools in the neighbourhood, viz. the National, Chapel-en-le-Frith, the Bowden Head school and Chinley Congregational Sunday school. A charity left in 1696 by Mary Dixon realizes £27 1s. yearly, £25 1s. of which goes to the National schools and £2 to the poor: William Walker in 1625 left £9 17s. 8d, yearly to the poor: Francis Mosley in 1704 left £26 a year, two-thirds for the incumbent and one-third to the poor: Gisborne's (1818) Charity for this parish is £7 5s. : there are also a number of minor charities amounting to about £38 yearly. In the Market place is a plain stone cross dated 1634. Here are paper mills, manufactories of buckram, wadding and scrap iron and a brewery. At Barmour Clough is an ebbing and flowing well, which has excited much attention. The ancient custom of ringing the curfew is still observed here every evening. The fairs are Thursday before February 14th, March 3rd and 29th, Thursday before Easter, April 30th, Holy Thursday and the Thursday three weeks afterwards, July 7th, Thursday after October 11th and Thursday before November 23rd. Cattle market-first Thursday in each month. The B Company, and Volunteer Battalion, Sherwood Foresters (Derbyshire Regiment) have their head quarters in the town. Bank Hall is the seat of Henry Constantine Renshaw esq. J.P. by whom it has been rebuilt on the site of an ancient house. Bowden Hall, the property of the Bev, W. S. Barnes-Slacke M.A. of Fulsham House, Wilmslow, Cheshire, and vicar of St. John's, Lindow, is the residence of Joseph Wainwright esq. Slacke Hall belongs to the same owner, but is at present unoccupied. Eccles House, the seat of Mrs. Goodman, has been the property of the ancestors of that lady for over 300 years, and was rebuilt in the latter end of the 17th century. Ford Hall, the seat of William Henry Greaves-Bagshawe esq. J.P. is delightfully situated in a well-wooded dell; portions of the house date from the end of the 15th century, and others are Elizabethan. Horwich House, the seat of Col. Edward Hall J.P. is situated on high ground overlooking the borders of Cheshire, The Ridge, a modern house, finely posted on a hill overlooking the town, is the residence of Joseph George Sington esq. and the property of James Walter Lowe esq. who resides in the adjoining and ancient hose called Ridge Hall. Bradshaw Hall, now a farm house, occupied by Mr. George Lomas, is the property of Charles Eyre Bradshaw Bowles esq. of Aston Lodge, Derby, the lineal descendant of the ancient family of Bradshaw, who held the attached state of about 300 acres from a period anterior to the reign of Edward III. as appears from various deeds in the possession of the present owner ; the house has often been erroneously represented as once the residence of John Bradshaw the regicide, who was born at Stockport in 1586, and died 11 Oct. 1659, and was descended, with the present owner, from a common ancestor, William Bradshaw of Bradshaw, who died c. 1562-3; the last of the name who lived here was Francis Bradshaw, high sheriff in 1630, who was second cousin to the regicide and died sine prole in 1635. H.M. the Queen is lady of the manor in right of the Duchy of Lancaster. The principal landowners are the Rev. W. S. Barnes- Slacke M.A. his Honor Judge W. H. G. Bagshawe Q.C., J.P. Stephen Jackson esq, of London, Henry Constantine Renshaw J. P. Hy. Kirke esq. of Demerara, Samuel Needham, Robert Hill Hyde and Charles Eyre Bradshaw Bowles esqs. The soil is dark loam; subsoil, grit and limestone. The land is chiefly used for grazing purposes, the arable growing oats. The parish contains about 13,220 acres; rateable value, £24,056; the population in 1881 was 4,170, including 8 officers and 80 inmates in the workhouse.
