Cemeteries

This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1878, and we understand it is still open.

St Paul's church was built in 1878-9 as a chapel of ease for Chapel en le Frith - "a plain building in the Gothic style, consisting of a chancel, nave, south porch and a turret containing one bell: in the chancel are three stained glass windows, erected in memory of the men from this place who fell in the Great War, 1914-18... the Rev. John NAISH has been curate in charge since 1932" (From Kelly's Directory of 1932)

Kelly also notes that Dove Holes is situated in three parishes, viz: Chapel en le Frith, Peak Forest and Wormhill. It also mentions its railway station, on the London and North Western section of the London, Midland and Scottish railway, and that the hamlet is supplied with water from works at Combs Moss, the property of the Rural District Council of Chapel en le Frith.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
