Cemeteries

This Chapel 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 1853, but we understand it was closed before 1927.

This former Congregational Chapel, described as being in Romanesque style, was designed and paid for by the antiquarian, Thomas Bateman of Lomberdale House, the grandson of Thomas Bateman of Middleton, former High Sheriff and Cotton Magnate, who himself had been a staunch non-conformist.

It was still in use in 1912, when Kelly's Directory of that year says there were 80 sittings. However, in 1927 it became a domestic science centre for the village school, and between 1939-1945 it was home for the Women's Voluntary Service (WVS). In 1955 it was taken over by the British Legion, and has been renamed "The Knoll Club" - after the hill at Coldwell End, at the west of the village.

There is a photograph of it the free newsletter for villages of Alport, Middleton and Youlgrave (2000 edition, pp.2-3) - The Bugle.

Denomination

Now or formerly Congregational.

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