== Chapelry History ==
Quernmore was created a district chapel in 1836 from, and lying within the
boundaries of [[Lancaster St Mary, Lancashire]] Ancient Parish.
The village consists of a small number of residential properties, mostly farm houses, nestling in the bottom of the small valley of the River Conder. The Methodist chapel lies at the heart of the community but is smaller than St Peter's, the Church of England church which lies isolated next to Quernmore Primary School.
The Diocese of Blackburn is a Church of England diocese, covering much of Lancashire, created in 1926 from part of the Diocese of Manchester. The Diocese includes the towns of Blackburn, Blackpool, Burnley, and the cities of Lancaster, and Preston, as well as a large part of the Ribble Valley.<br>
