Church History

Built in 1892 as a chapel to Bowdon: St. Mary. From 1906 a district church for part of the township of Hale (previously served by Bowdon: St. Mary and Altrincham: St. John the Evangelist). The boundaries of "The Consolidated Chapelry of Saint Peter, Hale" were described in the London Gazette on 31 July 1906:

"All those contiguous portions of the parish of Bowdon and of the new parish (sometime consolidated chapelry) of Saint John, Altrincham both in the county of Chester and in the diocese of Chester, which taken together are bounded upon part of north and upon the north-east by the new parish of Christ Church, Timperley, upon the east by the new parish of Ringway, upon the south by the consolidated chapelry of Saint Elizabeth, Ashley, all in the said county and diocese, and upon the remaining sides, that is to say, upon the west and upon the remaining part of the north, by an imaginary line commencing upon the boundary which divides the said consolidated chapelry of Saint Elizabeth, Ashley, from the said parish of Bowdon, at the centre of the bridge which carries Bankhall-lane across the Cheshire Lines Railway, and extending thence north-westward along the middle of the line of the said railway (thereby crossing at Ashley-road the boundary which divides the said parish of Bowdon from the said new parish of Saint John, Altrincham, and passing through Hale Railway Station) for a distance of fifty-five chains and a half or thereabouts to a point opposite to the middle of Broomfield-lane, and extending thence north-eastward to and along the middle of Broomfield-lane for a distance of twenty-five chains or thereabouts to its junction with Hale-road upon the boundary which divides the said new parish of Saint John, Altrincham, from the said new parish of Christ Church, Timperley."
