CHARLESWORTH is a township and ecclesiastical district, distant 1 mile from Dinting station, 200½ from London, 3 from Glossop, 13 from Manchester, 28¼ from Sheffield, 73¼ from Derby, 10½ from Staleybridge, 18 from Stockport, 97 from Birmingham, 44 from Liverpool, 80¾ from Wolverhampton, 27¼ from Ashton, and 66¼ from Stafford, in the Hundred of High Peak, parish of Glossop, Hayfield Union, with a population of 1,714 in 1851, in the township, and 2,945 in the ecclesiastical district. A new church, dedicated to St. John, a handsome building in the early English style, was consecrated in 1849, at a cost of £2,700, raised by subscription. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the gift of the Crown and Bishop of the diocese alternately; the Rev. Goodwin Purcell is the present incumbent. The Duke of Norfolk is lord of the manor. The Messrs. Booth have extensive premises, where they carry on the trade of brass and iron founders, also machine makers, which give employment to a number of hands. There is a cotton mill. A National school, in connection with the Church, has recently been erected by voluntary contributions, under almost overwhelming difficulties with which the Rev. William Purcell had to contend. Here are chapels for the Independents, Baptists, Wesleyans, and Primitive Methodists.
Simmondly is a township, with a population of 676; Chisworth, a township, with a population of 555.
