Parishes

Peak Forest

" PEAK FOREST is all extra parochial liberty, in the hundred of High Peak, about three miles and a half north-west from Tideswell. This district is in the honour of Tutbury, duchy of Lancaster, and within the jurisdiction of a court of pleas, held at Tutbury every third Tuesday, for the recovery of debts under 40s. The chapel here is dedicated to King Charles the Martyr: the living is a perpetual curacy in the peculiar jurisdiction of the dean and chapter of Lichfield, and in the patronage of the Duke of Devonshire. A free school here has a small endowment, for the education of ten poor children. The liberty contained, in 1831, 573 inhabitants, being fewer by thirty-four than were returned for it thirty years previous; and a reduction in the population of 107 persons since the census of 1821."

[Description from Pigot and Co's Commercial Directory for Derbyshire , 1835]

The nearly 5,300 acres of the parish have been mostly pasturage.

Peak Forest, St Charles King and Martyr, was originally an extra parochial chapelry in the union of Chapel-en-le-Frith. The chapel was built in 1657 and is now considered a parish . The hamlet of Dove Holes, Derbyshire was added in 1983
