Chapel History

Pendlebury St John the Evangelist was created a district chapelry in 1842 from, and lying within the boundaries of Eccles, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

Here is an 1848 historical perspective on Pendlebury by the topographer, Samuel A. Lewis:

"PENDLEBURY, a township [chapelry], in the parish of Eccles, union and hundred of Salford, S. division of Lancashire, 4¼ miles (N. W. by W.) from Manchester; containing 2198 inhabitants. Mention of the local family of Pendlebury occurs as early as the time of Henry I. The Longleys or Langleys subsequently held lands here; of this family was Cardinal Thomas Langley, son of Sir Thomas, who flourished at the beginning of the 16th century. The manor passed by marriage to Sir Edward Coke's fifth son, and was sold by the late Earl of Leicester, when Mr. Coke, to the Drinkwater family. Agecroft Hall, a fine large wood-and-plaster mansion principally of the age of Elizabeth, stands on an eminence overlooking the course of the river Irwell; it was successively the residence of the Langley and Dauntesey families, and at the end of the last century came into the possession of the Rev. Richard Buck. The windows are ornamented with stained glass, exhibiting the armorial bearings of John of Gaunt, emblems of Henry II., and arms and crests of the Langleys: the apartment now used as a library, was a domestic chapel in the reign of Elizabeth, at which time there was a moat in front of the Hall. The Bolton and Bury canal and the Manchester and Bolton railway run through the township, as does the road from Manchester to Bolton. The population is chiefly employed in the manufacture and printing of cotton. St. John's church, here, is a plain square-built Norman structure, without a chancel, erected by the Manchester and Eccles Church-Building Society. The living is a perpetual curacy; net income, £200; patrons, Trustees. There is a place of worship for Independents, and on the road to Bolton are schools in connexion with the Church."
