Chapel-en-le-Frith

Virgin Voyager heads North

A Perfect Place to Visit

The cobbled market square is surrounded by pubs and most of the remaining old buildings of the town.  It also contains a fine old market cross, the old town stocks, the war memorial and a horse trough placed here to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.  An Old Town Trail and a series of Parish Paths Walks are available from the Hearse House Visitor Centre on Market Street.

Chapel-en-le-Frith owes much of its prosperity to the Ferodo Works, makers of brake linings and car components, whose factory dominates the northern end of the town. Its founder, Henry Froode, was a local man who was one of the inventors of brake linings.

The Peak Forest Tramway closed in the 1920s and now makes a very pleasant walk connecting Bugsworth Basin with Dove Holes Dale.

The Chestnut Centre is a 25 acre conservation park has several species of otters, owls, birds of prey and Scottish wild cats and foxes, which can be seen in a pleasant environment in which Fallow deer graze. It's a great place to take children, and has is a tea-room and shop.
