Church History

Built in 1874 as a chapel to Chorley: St. Philip & St. James. In 1877 it became the district church for parts of the townships of Chorley, Pownall Fee and Fulshaw (previously served by Chorley: St. Philip & St. James). The boundaries of "The District Chapelry of Saint John, Lindow" were described in the London Gazette on 18 December 1877:

"All that part of the new parish of Saint Philip Chorley, in the county of Chester and in the diocese of Chester, which is bounded on the west partly by the parish of Alderley and partly by the parish of Mobberley, both in the county and diocese aforesaid, on the north and on the east by the parish of Wilmslow in the same county and diocese, and on the remaining side that is to say on the south-east by an imaginary line commencing upon the boundary which divides the said parish of Wilmslow from the new parish of Saint Philip Chorley aforesaid at the centre of White Hall Bridge which carries the Wilmslow and Congleton turnpike-road over the stream called or known as Preston Brook, and extending thence generally south-westward for a distance of two miles or thereabouts along the middle of the said brook to the boundary which divides the said new parish of Saint Philip Chorley, from the parish of Alderley aforesaid."
