 Hayfield and neighbourhood

to list of names

HAYFIELD, an independent chapelry, generally included in the parish of Glossop, is four miles S. from Glossop, and about the same distance N. from Chapel-en-le-Frith. It is a populous manufacturing district, having several large cotton spinning factories, and one for woollen goods. The church is a handsome modern edifice, rebuilt by the inhabitants in 1818, and the interior is much admired for its neatness. The living is a perpetual curacy, and the resident freeholders have the privilege of nominating the minister. This peculiar right it seems was granted by Richard II in the year 1386. The present incumbent is the Rev. Samuel Wasse, M.A. who is also the head master of the free grammar school at Sherborne, Yorkshire. Here is a large day and Sunday school belonging to the establishment; the day school having an endowment for the education of a limited number of free scholars, who, together with the children of the town and neighbourhood, are taught by Mr. E. Adamson, the present master. A meeting-house is here for the methodists` old connexion, who also have a large Sunday School. About a mile from Hayfield, on the Glossop road, is situated Park Hall, the beautiful seat of John White Esq., a magistrate for the county of Derby. The population of the whole chapelry, including the out-townships, by the parliamentary returns, is about 3,600.   POST OFFICE, George Inn, Rachael Quarmby, Post Mistress - Letters from STOCKPORT arrive every evening at six, and are despatched every morning at a quarter before seven.
