History edit

In the thirteenth century, Ralph de Ecclesall gave his mill on the River Sheaf to the monks of Beauchief Abbey.[3] Out of the proceeds of the mill the monks were to provide a canon to officiate at daily services in his chapel. These services continued until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the sixteenth century. In 1622, the chapel was restored and brought back into use as a chapel of ease to the parish of Sheffield.[3] In the 1780s a new chapel was constructed a short distance from the old one, this opened on 13 December 1788 and the old chapel was demolished.[3] This building was improved in 1843 and enlarged in 1864.[4] The parish of Sheffield was sub-divided in 1845 and Ecclesall chapel became the mother church of the parish of Ecclesall. A new transept was added in 1907, and the church was reordered in 1964 by George Pace, and again in 1997.[5]
