Chapel-en-le-Frith

About

Chapel-en-le-Frith originated from a small chapel, built in 1225 by the keepers of the Royal Forest, and is the historic Capital of the Peak.

Today, the town of Chapel-en-le-Frith is a small rural town with a historic core and a range of independent shops and services, including award winning cafes and restaurants, supermarkets, and great places to stay.

Chapel is home to one of the Peak District's principal traditional carnivals, held in June; one of Derbyshire's largest well dressing festivals in July; traditional May Day in the Market Place and hosts other events such as Proms in the Park (Aug).

The popular Old Town Trail is a free self guided walking trail of Chapel's historic centre, featuring the 13th Century Church of St. Thomas Becket where 1,500 Scottish soldiers were imprisoned and starved during the Civil War; 18th Century Church Brow and the traditional Market Place with stocks and ancient cross. Trail leaflets available at local outlets.

The Memorial Park has picturesque grounds with a kickabout area, skateboard/BMX ramps, basketball hoops, bowling green and children's playground.

Chapel-en-le-Frith's acclaimed 18-hole Golf Course welcomes visitors to play. If it's wet outside then visit the Leisure Centre with saunas, steam rooms, indoor and outdoor facilities and fully equipped gym, visitor day-passes available.

On a clear day why not climb up Eccles Pike, a short 1.5-mile walk from the town centre which has a 360-degree panorama and its unique sculptured topography allows visitors to view all major Dark Peak summits.
