Chapelry History

Tatham Fells was created a chapel of ease in 1737 from, and lying within the boundaries of Tatham Ancient Parish; and situated in Lowgill. A large part of the parish of Tatham is an upland area, known as Tatham Fells, which includes the largest settlement in Tatham, Lowgill; its highest point, at Ward's Stone; and the Great Stone of Fourstones, known locally as "The Big Stone".

Lowgill is a hamlet within the Forest of Bowland.

The Forest of Bowland is a sparsely inhabited Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with sheep farming and steep narrow unclassified roads passing between settlements and isolated farms.

The present church was built in the 1880's; the site of the altar of the previous chapelry is marked in the churchyard by a stone cross.

The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.

"TATHAM-FELL, a chapelry, with Lowgill village, in Tatham parish, Lancashire; 2½ miles S by W of High Bentham r. station, and 5 ESE of Hornby. Post town, Wray, under Lancaster. The living is a p. curacy in the diocese of Manchester. Value, £125. Patron, the Rector of Tatham. The church was built in 1745. There is a parochial school."
