    Recently I stopped and read some of the inscriptions on gravestones some of which dated back to the 19th century. I can remember the original chapel but I know nothing about it. This must have been a very remote area one hundred and fifty years ago.
    Do you have any information?

    • Hello Mike,

      Sorry for not replying before but we haven’t been checking the website very often during the COVID lockdown.

      Long Lane Chapel was established in 1867 and served as both a day school and a Sunday school for the local community.
      The Tithe Map of Heald Green shows the main road (Long Lane/Wilmslow Road) as well as Finney Lane and Outwood Road,
      but Turves Road was not built until much later (1950s or 60s I think).

      The Williams family, who were closely associated with the church, produced a a book ‘Long Lane Cheadle Remembered’
      which outlines the history of the area. This is not widely available but may possibly held in the local library.
      We have a copy if you are interested.

      Perhaps you would like to visit us at one of our monthly Saturday coffee mornings when we able to resume them.
      Maybe we can lend yo a copy of the book if you would like to read more about the area.

      Thank you for your interest.

        I have been unable to find a copy of the book so I look forward to attending one of your coffee mornings.
        Many thanks for the offer. Please let me know the time and date of your next event.

        I remember the old chapel but I cannot recall the denomination prior to the United Reformed Church. Congregationalist? Can you jog my memory?

        Many thanks

        Mike Gorman.

      • Hello Mike,

        The chapel was originally a Congregational Chapel which then became Long Lane United Reformed Church
        when the new denomination was formed in 1972, merging the Presbyterian and Congregational Churches.
        Long Lane URC and St Columba URC (originally a Presbyterian church and now the CMA Mosque) joined
        together in the 1990s and built the new church building after the St Columba site was vacated.

        We don’t yet know when our coffee mornings will resume but we will advertise with a banner outside
        the church during the week before. We normally hold the coffee mornings on the first Saturday of the
        month so if the COVID restrictions are lifted as expected it is likely to be July before we are able
        to restart.

        We look forward to being able to welcome you.

        Regards

        Allan Haigh
