The word Scholes is said to have derived from the Old Norse meaning ‘temporary shed’. In the mid-1880s, Isaac Chippendale started the Scholes Brick and Tile Works, which contained a company quarry. The bricks and tile from Isaac Chippendale was used to build and tile many of the houses in the surrounding areas. In the early 1980s, the kilns and works were demolished, leaving only two small fishing lakes. These lakes are still known locally as “Chippy’s Quarry”.
