Full Description

The 1st ed. 25" OS map shows a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on the High Street in Tibshelf. (1) By the end of the 19th century a Sunday School had been added to the rear of the building, on Back Lane. (2) The Wesleyan Chapel is a neat building of brick, erected in 1863, and comfortably furnished with open seats of pitchpine to accommodate 250. A commodious Sunday school was built in 1891. (3) Examination of modern maps shows that the building is still standing and is being used as a place of worship [2009]. (4)
