This unusual church was built in 1733 as a residence for the minister and a place of worship. It was later dedicated to St John the Evangelist. The chapel stands in a lonely spot at the junction of 3 "salters roads"; so called because they were the pack horse routes for transporting salt in the 18th century. The origin of the name is disputed but may be from a local farming family called Jenkin. I believe that services are still held here once a month, despite the chapel being 3 miles from the nearest village (Rainow).
