Scartharnick, Matlock

an unknown location

The list of places of worship published by the Registrar General in June 1867 includes a Primitive Methodist chapel in Scartharnick, Matlock. I have been unable to locate this place or building on any map, or find any other mention of it. Even the Circuit preaching plans for the Winster Circuit (in which it would have been) give no clues. Can anyone throw any light on this mystery?

  • Scarthin chapel was built in 1810 and enlarged in 1853.
    It is located on the millpond side of Scarthin at the southern end of the street. It is signified by a stone plaque in the brickwork above the front door.

  • White’s 1857 Directory of Derbyshire refers to a PM chapel in Longway Bank (to east of Wirksworth) at Scarthing Row.

    This could be the answer.

  • That is a good suggestion, but the previous entry to Scartharnick, Matlock in the Registrar General’s list is for Scarthin, Cromford. On the other hand there are duplicate entries and misreadings abound, so you may well be correct!

  • Could I suggest that this is Cromford PM chapel–the entry on this site for Cromford correctly gives its address as
    SCARTHIN ROW. The village of Cromford is just three miles south of Matlock Bath.
