Administrative history

Chapel Haddlesey, sometimes known as Middle Haddlesey, was a chapel of ease within the parish of Birkin, dedicated to St John the Baptist. The chapel, which dated to at least the fourteenth century, was rebuilt and enlarged in 1836. In 1873 Chapel Haddlesey, West Haddlesey, Temple Hirst and Hirst Courtney separated from Birkin parish to form the new parish of Chapel Haddlesey.

Today the parish, which includes St John the Baptist Church in Chapel Haddlesey and St John’s Chapel at Temple Hirst, is part of the united benefice of Haddlesey with Hambleton and Birkin.
