St John the Baptist (Jenkin Chapel)
Church / Chapel
In a beautiful rural setting near Rainow, surrounded by a belt of trees on an otherwise bare hillside, Jenkin Chapel was built in 1733 by local farmers.
Within the simple cottage-type building are the original box pews, and high, octagonal pulpit.
The unspoilt nature of the building and its setting made this a perfect location for the filming of the BBC’s recent production of Jane Eyre and it is a very popular destination for walkers in this lovely countryside.
Apart from services it is locked because of its isolated position, but guided visits can be arranged in advance and are available for groups.
Evensong is at 3pm on the second and fourth Sundays between Easter and Christmas.
