Angie, Lisa and Mark at Chadkirk Chapel

Chadkirk Chapel

Liberal Democrats led the fight along with Friends of Chadkirk to save Chadkirk Chapel from closure by the Council. 

The then Labour-controlled Stockport Council aimed to strip the Chapel of its museum status, in a bid to balance their budget. It was proposed that it would no longer be open at weekends and therefore effectively closed to the public except for private events such as weddings, with no indications as to its future operation or maintenance.

The Grade II* listed building is an award winning wedding venue. The country estate is also a nature reserve and is bordered by the River Goyt and Peak Forest Canal, making a great spot from which to explore the local area. The chapel is open on certain days for members of the public to visit as well, with refreshments such as hot and cold drinks, cakes and biscuits sold on a cash-only basis from the kiosk.

We're now working with the council to develop a long-term plan for the chapel and country estate to flourish.

It’s Lib Dem Lisa or the Conservatives – Labour have never done better than third place at general elections here!"
