Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1804, though it is now closed, but we don't yet know when.

Some Old Maps, for example OS 1889 1:2,500 mark this location as a Burial Ground (Disused)

Note that the street it was adjacent to is named "Chaple Way" (sic) on Google Street View.

This was attached to the original Methodist Chapel, built by Mr. John Thornley, a local mill owner, in 1804 - the first to be built in the Borough of Glossop and surrounds, though earlier meetings had taken place at his mill, now submerged by the Valehouse Reservoir. It proved to be too small for an expanding congregation, when more cotton mills were being built, and in 1876 it was replaced by a new Chapel in Bank Street.

A fuller account of the chapel's history is available on a webpage provided by the Glossop Heritage Trust - Glossopdale Churches and Chapels.
