1932

HAYFIELD is a township and parish, formed in 1837 from that of Glossop and consisting of the hamlets of great Hamlet, Phoside and Kinder, head of a rural district, in the High Peak division of the county, county court district of Buxton and New Mills, hundred of High Peak, petty sessional division of Chapel-en-le-Frith, rural deanery of Glossop, archdeaconry of Chesterfield and diocese of Derby. Hayfield is the terminus of a branch line from New Mills on the London and North Eastern railway, 6 miles south from Glossop station, 4 north from Chapel-en-le-Frith, 18 from Manchester, 10 from Buxton, 3 from New Mills and 11 south-east from Stockport: the village, built of stone, has a scattered and bleak appearance, and is about 622 feet above the sea level, standing on the banks of the Sett, a rapid mountain stream which rises on the western slopes of the Peak. The church of St. Matthew, situated between the Kinder stream and Phoside valley, was originally erected in 1386, and rebuilt in 1818 at a cost of £2,000, and is an edifice of stone in the Early English style, consisting of chancel, nave, aisles, south porch and an embattled western tower with pinnacles, containing a clock and 6 bells: the tower was rebuilt in 1894, and in 1898 the chancel was enlarged and decorated at a cost of £80: there & a monument with bust, by Bacon, to Joseph Hague esq. of Park Hall, d. 1780, and others to the Rev. John Badley, curate of Hayfield (1764), and to the Rev. George Buckley Bower B.D. rector of Great Billing, Northants, and archdeacon of Richmond, Yorks (1800): the stained east window was erected in Dec. 1879, by Mrs. Bennett, of Birch Vale house, in memory of her husband; and there are others to Levi and Elijah Hall, Mrs. Hall, of Moorlands, and-Wright Turner esq. (1881): the brass eagle lectern, and the font, of Caen stone, are memorials: a brass ewer was given by Miss B. E. R. Walker, and a new pulpit by C. Bennett esq.: there are 700 sittings, 50 being free: an additional burying ground of one acre was bought by a rate and consecrated in 1862: the Rev. John Wesley visited Hayfield and preached in the church in 1755, during the incumbency of Mr. Badley. The register dates from the year 1622. The living is a perpetual curacy, net yearly value £350, in the gift of the resident freeholders, and held since 1932 by the Rev. George William Cleavely of King's College, London: a parsonage house was erected in 1864, at a cost of £1,200. There are Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist and United Methodist chapels, and Liberal and Conservative clubs. The facilities for manufacture, owing to the abundance of water, are very considerable, and two extensive calico-printing works are carried on, besides the print works at Birch Vale, a mile south; there is a paper mill at Bank Vale; formerly a good deal of twine, locally known as "bant," was made here: twice a year a shepherds' meeting & held, when the various sheep marks are agreed upon and strayed sheep exchanged; fairs for cattle are held here May 12th and October 10th. The charities amount to £23 yearly for clothing, chiefly by the gift of Joseph Hague esq. of Park Hall (1778); the late Mrs. Slack, of Oaklands, left £500, the interest of which & given to the poor; prior to 1820 the poor had a right of turfery on "Old Pits," a plot of 40 acres on Leygate Moor. Due south of Hayfield lies Chinley Tor, a steep and rugged mountain 1,493 feet high, commanding fine views over the valley of the Goyt and the adjacent summit of Eccles Pike (1,225 feet) southwards; to the west lie Whaley Moor (1,347 feet) and Sponds Hill (1,357 feet) ; northwards there is an extensive prospect over Disley, Poynton Park and the plains of Cheshire; this district is believed to have been at one time in Roman occupation, and some coins of the 8th century have been found on the Doctor's road, near Bowden Bridge, one part of which road was paved: previously to 1830 the flat piece of ground near the Kinder Print Works was common land, and known as “Cutlers' Green,” cutlery having, it is said, been made here before its manufacture was known in Sheffield; halfway between this spot and Hayfield is the Whitworth well, famous for its curative properties. The village, from its peculiar situation, has always been liable to floods, one of which, in 1748, destroyed some lives, several water mills and part of the churchyard; in August, 1799, the bridge was washed away, and in 1809 a number of buildings; again, on the 16th June, 1858, the torrent tore up the mill weir and carried away the backs of four houses abutting on the stream. By an ancient custom Hayfield had the privilege of electing a mayor, an office which John Hobson esq. filled for thirty years: Joseph Bowden esq. was elected mayor of Hayfield in 1844. Park Hall was formerly the abode of Joseph Hague, a generous benefactor to this neighbourhood, who began life by selling small articles from a basket, and subsequently went to London, where in course of time he became an opulent merchant; he died at Park Hall on the 12th March, 1786, and was buried at Glossop. The area of Hayfield parish is 7,901 acres of land and 19 of water; the population in 1921 was 2,644.
Highgate Head and Oaklands are places in the parish.

CHINLEY, BUXWORTH and BROWNSIDE form a township in the ancient civil parish of Glossop (the three places being united for poor rates), in the High Peak division of the county, hundred of High Peak and petty sessional division, rural district and county court district of Chapel-en-le-Frith. By an Order in Council, gazetted August 24th, 1915, the township of Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside was formed into an ecclesiastical parish named Chinley with Buxworth. It is in the rural deanery of Glossop, archdeaconry of Chesterfield and diocese of Derby. The land is held by numerous small owners. The soil is a dark loam; subsoil, grit stone. The land is chiefly used for grazing purposes. The area of Chinley, Buxworth and Brownside is 3,817 acres of land and 14 of water; the Population in 1921 was 1,968.
CHINLEY is 2 miles north from Chapel-en-le-Frith, with a station for passenger and goods traffic on the Midland Section of the London Midland and Scottish railway, 172 miles from London. The Dore and Chinley branch of the same railway, constructed in 1894, and including two fine viaducts, joins the Ambergate and Manchester and Sheffield branch here. St. Mary's church room, built in 1908 at a cost of £500, will seat 150 persons: on the wall is a metal plate on which are inscribed the names of the men of the parish who fell in the Great War, 1914-18; a replica of the plate is in the churchyard at Buxworth. There is also an endowed Congregational chapel and Sunday School, the school receiving one half of the rents and profits arising from the Town Hall of Chapel-en-le-Frith, through the Will of Thomas Slack esq. M.D. The chapel was founded in 1662, and has 300 sittings. The Wesleyan Sunday School was built in 1903. In the township are bleaching, sheet wadding and cotton wool mills, and the High Peak Hospital for Infectious Diseases, opened in May, 1902.
HIGH PEAK HOSPITAL COMMITTEE.
