ONECOTE, a chapelry in that part of the parish of LEEK which is in the northern division of the hundred of TOTMONSLOW, county of STAFFORD, 5 miles (E. by S.) from Leek, containing 585 inhabitants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the archdeaconry of Stafford, and diocese of Lichfield and Coventry, endowed with £800 royal bounty, and £1400 parliamentary grant, and in the patronage of the Vicar of Leek. The chapel is a small stone structure. There are copper-mines at Mixen, and small portions of copper and lead are found imbedded among limestone in most of the hills in the neighbourhood. Within the chapelry is a deep valley surrounded by rocks, called Narrowdale, in which the inhabitants, during several months in the year, cannot behold the sun.
