High Peak Borough
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Norman Kings used this area as a hunting ground and created a large tract as the Royal Forest of the Peak. A chapel was built in the forest in 1225 hence Chapel-en-le-Frith. The church was dedicated to Saint Thomas Becket. The present parish church stands on the same site and was added to and rebuilt in 1733. There are burials and memorials in the church and in the surrounding yard.
