History of the Church: It was commissioned by John Chapman in 1857 and designed by George Shaw, an architect from Saddleworth.

Above the inner door is an inscribed stone ribbon recording that foundation stone was laid by John Chapman’s eldest son Edward on 19th September 1856 and it was opened on 28th June 1857.

The church was served by a Resident Chaplain; firstly the Rev. E D Jackson, followed by Rev. W C Dudley, who had been one of our first missionaries to New Zealand. Upon his death in 1879, the administration of the church passed to the Vicar of Penistone, who has been responsible for it ever since.

As well as building the church, John Chapman built the Vicarage in Carlecotes to house the Resident Chaplain.



The sun shone as St Anne's Church held a hugely successful garden party on 1st July, with the event raising £1,200 towards church funds.

Heading up the event was Hade Edge Brass Band with a wonderful rendition of classic tunes both old and new.  We were then entertained by the Retrolettes, with Teresa and John providing their own fun folk vibe and combining it with some wartime favourites.

Strawberries and meringues were served in the marquee and the garden party was opened by Cllr Roger Hinchcliff, the Mayor of Penistone.

We would like to thank all community members and church congregation who helped out and made this such a successful day.


Award-winning Hade Edge Brass Band will be at St Anne’s in Carlecotes on Saturday 1st July from 2pm at the church’s annual Summer Garden Party.

Strawberries and cream and refreshments will be served in the grounds of the church and hall and also back by popular demand will be The Retrolettes who entertained the crowds last year.

The event will raise funds for the upkeep of St Anne’s Church, as well as towards the cost of refurbishing its historic organ.
Past and present photographs of the church and local area will be on display and there will be games and fun for all the family, as well as a number of classic cars on display.

Reverend David Hopkin said: “The Summer Garden Party is the highlight of the calendar for many people in this area and is our major fundraiser for St Anne’s church.  We hope as many local people as possible will be able to support us as possible this year.”

2017 is the 16th Anniversary of St Anne’s which was built in 1857. Further celebrations to commemorate the event later this year.
