DESCRIPTION

The tiny village of Alsop-en-le-Dale was one of the numerous chapelries of Ashbourne.

The small church is of early Norman foundations, the best feature being the doorway.

The registers of baptism, marriage and burial begin in 1701; earlier entries will be found in the parish registers of St. Oswald, Ashbourne. This is mainly a farming area, however, when the High Peak Railway was built near to the village, which had its own station, several inhabitants worked for this railway. The track of the railway now forms the High Peak Trail for walkers and cyclists.

The old Manor House with its stone mullioned widows has many features of 16th century date still remaining. The Alsop family held the manor for seventeen generations until 1688. It then passed through several families. In the second half of the 1800's Henry Allsopp, son of Samuel the Burton Brewer, purchased the Manor House and property around and lived there until his death.
