Church Coppenhall, Cheshire

Historical Description

Church-Coppenhall, a township and a parish in Cheshire. The township is 2 miles NE of Crewe, and 4 N of Nantwich. Post town, Crewe. Acreage, 1535; population, 4165. The greater part of the township, including the whole of the urban population, and also the church and rectory, was incorporated with the borough of Crewe in 1892. The population of the unincorporated portion is only about 700. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Chester; net value, £240. Patron, the Bishop of Chester. There was a church here in the 13th century, and the names of rectors are found as far back as 1373. It has been successively rebuilt, the last effort in this direction being in 1886, when a very lofty and stately chancel, side-chapel, vestry, organ chamber, and transepts were erected and used with the old nave. There are Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels. Church-Dilwyn. See DILWYN.
