Parish History

DUKINFIELD or Duckenfield, is a township, in the parish of Stockport, union of Ashton-under-Lyne, hundred of Macclesfield, N. division of the county of Chester; adjoining Ashton-under-Lyne. The river Tame separates the township from the town of Ashton-under-Lyne, in Lancashire.  A church, dedicated to St. John the Evangelist, was erected in 1840-1841, and consecrated on May 24th in the latter year. An ecclesiastical parish, called St. Mark's, was formed of a part of Dukinfield adjoining Ashton, in February 1846. Another chapel was built and situated in the town of Stalybridge (which is partly in this township), called Castle Hall Chapel, was formed, also in 1846.
The Calvinists, Independents, Primitive and Wesleyan Methodists, Methodists of the New Connexion, Moravians, Unitarians, and Roman Catholics have places of worship.[1]
