The Chapel House, Astley Street, Dukinfield
The Chapel House at 192 Astley Street was so-called because it was originally close to St Mary’s Church which opened in 1825 on the corner of Astley Street and Palmer Street to accommodate the growing Catholic population of Ashton who were forbidden to practise their religion there. In 1847 it closed because of subsidence caused by the nearby Dog Lane Colliery and the church moved to Zetland Street. LinkExternal link

As indicated by the signage below the roofline it was originally a Groves and Whitnall's house. Later it became a Joseph Holt's house but is now a freehouse.

For information on the former brewer Groves and Whitnall see LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
