Hall history

The land forming the site of Victory Hall was  originally conveyed by Samuel Taylor to the Vicar of St Thomas Becket, Chapel en le Frith, for the purpose of building a facility for the purposes of divine service and, amongst other purposes, as a school for the education of poor children and adults resident in or the Parish of Chapel-en-le-Frith.  The price paid was £75.  The Church was we believe to be dedicated to St John, but the building was never completed for reasons unknown.

At some stage the land was bought by Joan Mary Greenwood, who was brought up and lived next door.  Her mother was a ‘Hadfield’, herself one of the family who owned The Forge/Hadfields Mill.  She entered into a deed of trust that the land was to be held for the benefit of the inhabitants of Whitehough with provision that if the trusts failed or otherwise were brought to an end the land would be conveyed back to her for £100.  She conveyed the land to The Scout Association Trust Corporation.

The approximate postcode for the hall is SK23 6DF

At some time there was a proposal to add an extension to the side of the hall as shown in the picture below.
