The Forest Chapel

It's a measure of how isolated this part of Cheshire (the Macclesfield Forest) once was that they didn't start building churches here until the late 17th century. This is the Forest Chapel, founded in 1673- rebuilt by the Victorians. Just down the road is Wildboarclough where, according to legend, John of Gaunt killed the last boar in England.



This is the view from the churchyard, looking south east.
