Chapelry History

Inskip St Peter was created a district chapelry or church in 1848, from and lying within St Michael on Wyre, Lancashire Ancient Parish. Other places in the parish include: Sowerby. Inskip is a small village in the Fylde area of Lancashire, England. It is part of the civil parish of Inskip-with-Sowerby. The village is close to the former RNAS Inskip airfield, which site still serves the armed forces as a tri-service communication centre. The hamlet of Inskip Moss Side lies about a mile north and east of the village

Inskip was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Inscip. Its area was estimated in that survey to be two carucates of land. From 1281, the village was owned by Richard Butler of Rawcliffe Hall. He received it from William de Carleton as a dowry of his bride, Alice.

St Peter's church was built in 1848 and was financed by the Earl of Derby and Archdeacon Hornby. It has been designated a Grade II listed building by English Heritage.
