Chapel-en-le-Frith, the Church of St Thomas Becket
Chapel-en-le-Frith, the Church of St Thomas Becket
The first chapel in the town (now the Church of St Thomas Becket) was originally built by the Normans but was replaced with a larger building a hundred years later.

The church stands at the highest point in the town. The current building is now almost entirely of 18th-century construction having been refashioned in 1733. It was the subject of major restoration in the mid-1970s.

The church is a Grade II* listed building (LinkExternal link British Listed Buildings).
