Sunday…. And a Country Church

Jenkin Chapel

Jenkin Chapel

The simple rustic Alter and Bible in this tiny Chapel high on the Moors that straddle the Derbyshire/Cheshire Border, roughly between Buxton to the East and Macclesfield the the West.. A lonely and sometimes wild location between several very small hamlets.

The Chapel was built in 1733… from local materials and entirely from funds raised within this tiny farming community.

Once established it served not only the needs of the community, but also those traveling along the ‘Salters Road’ that passes close by the Chapel

This Sunday and everyday….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. I love this one… as today it seems lost in the wilds, it seems miles from anyone. Hard to imagine that the Salters Way was once a very busy Packhorse route – probably equivalent to one of todays major highways.
