Dukinfield Old Hall Chapel

Old Hall Street, off Globe Lane,
Dukinfield, Tameside

This chapel dates from the late 16th or early 17th century and it was the domestic chapel of Dukinfield Hall. In 1872 an extension, in the form of a large transept, was opened on the west side for use as a Congregational Chapel. Further alterations were made in 1891/93 designed by the architects Worthington and Elgood of Manchester. In the 20th century the transept became unused and dilapidated and in 1980 it was severely damaged by a fire that spread to the original chapel. The transept was demolished in 1981 leaving only the remains of the original chapel still standing. These remains were so poor that Historic England funded an archaeological recording exercise. The chapel remains are listed Grade II*, List Entry No. 1356422, and it is on the Heritage at Risk Register.
