Churches in the Parish of Ecclesfield

11 posts in this topic

I'm interested to know if anyone can tell me how many churches are actually in the Parish of Ecclesfield. Its a huge parish but am I right in thinking that only St Mary's and St Nicholas's were there in the early period before expansion in the 19th century?

The present Deanery of Ecclesfield incorporates the following parishes:-

Bolsterstone,Bradfield,Brightside,Chapeltown,Deepcar,Pitsmoor,Grenoside,Mortomley,Oughtibridge,Norwood.ParsonX,Southey.Fir Vale,Shiregreen, Stocksbridge and Ecclesfield itself....A large deanery but years ago the Minster on the Moor was the mother church of an area which stretched almost to Cheshire.

I have always wondered what the little church/chapel is called on Halifax Rd at Wadsley Bridge is. It's near the funeral home.

Anyone?

Am i correct in thinking there are or were three Churches within say roughly 300/400 yards of each other on Halifax Road ?

If so could someone be kind enough to explain to me exactly where they were positioned ?

1).The above one Centenary Methodist Chapel .I have passed many times by the funeral home and had not noticed it ,so where on a map might it be?

2)There is also a little Church /Chapel on the same side of the road about 100 yards above the bridge .

3)The third one . . . now this is a real mystery to me.A family member once told me of a Church being somewhere near the junction of Halifax Road / Penistone Road.This one is a real puzzler.

Any help with maps of all three Churches would be kindly appreciated, thanks in advance.

Many thanks SteveHB, the map you produced is great, it really is.So looking say from Halifax Road towards the Centenary Methodist Church there are a row of buildings . . . the Church cannot be in view . . . would that be correct and maybe the reason of my not noticing it?

The map is 1920's, the row of buildings has long gone, did you not look at the Google street view link I provided?

Here it is looking from another angle .. https://goo.gl/maps/j6FsdUX7BJB2

I seem to remember that during the 70/80's the disused  Methodist chapel, referred to, was occupied by a steel analysis company owned by a chap called Ron Armitage who had an assistant who had played knurr and spell up Grenoside way!
