The place-name Chadkirk means 'the church of Chad' and local legend has it that Chadkirk Chapel occupies the site of an ancient monastic cell of St. Chad, dating as far back as the 7th Century.
Today the chapel is used as a wedding venue by Stockport Council and a volunteer group called Friends of Chadkirk help to look after Chadkirk Chapel, the walled garden and estate.
There’s plenty to do and see at Chadkirk. The facilities include picnic areas, the historic Chadkirk Chapel and walled garden, farmland that’s managed as a local nature reserve, a circular trail and Chadkirk Bridge, which provides links from Chadkirk Estate to more trails.
