The History of Chapeltown
The name Chapeltown was originally used to describe the area and surrounding areas of Chapel Allerton. The green areas to the north and east of Potter-Newton was known as Chapel-Town Moor; now known as Chapeltown. Chapel-Town Moor was green space used for recreation such as races, archery and cricket matches.
In the 19th century, the area was developed into a wealthy area, consisting of large terraces and villas. Some of these still remain and have been divided into small low-rent flats. The area has been used as community settlements and has successively transformed many times, depending on social use. For example; The Union Chapel on Chapeltown Road transformed into a synagogue and then a Sikh Temple.
