One morning whilst watching the Test Match on the telly from Old Trafford the famous Australian cricketer and legendary commentator, Richie Benaud, mentioned the weather in Chapel-en-le-Frith at least 3 times during the day.
I had no idea why Richie would say this and even wondered how he even knew about Chapel.
I mentioned it to one of the locals who told me that Richie had stayed at Lydgate for years when there were Tests on at Old Trafford, Leeds and Nottingham.
