"Cheddleton Church, St Edward, is an ancient structure, and the living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the co-heiress of the late Rev Edward Powys, who died in 1851, and incumbency of the Rev. William Williams, MA.
Near the church is a small Methodist chapel, which was enlarged in 1846.
There is a district church at Wetley Rocks, St John, erected in 1833-4. It is built of durable stone from the neighbouring quarries, and has a square tower and one bell. In the village is a Wesleyan chapel, built in 1841. An old Independent chapel here is now an infant school."
