Chapel-en-le-Frith, known as 'The Capital of the Peak' nestles in an upland valley in the High Peak and is
surrounded by dramatic landscape of gritstone ridges and shapely hills. The town takes its name from a small chapel
built in 1225 by the keepers of the Royal Forest that is now the Church of St Thomas Becket, where 1,500 Scottish
soldiers were imprisoned during the Civil War. The historic town centre also features a traditional marketplace
which still has its original renowned stocks which the local cafe takes its name.

a range of restaurants and eateries, local shops, chemists, post office, outstanding rated High School and
excellent primary schools in the town and surrounding villages. Larger supermarkets of Morrisons and Aldi complete
the landscape of a well-served town.
