Full Description

The 2nd ed. 25" OS map c. 1900 shows a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on Dog Lane [Portland Street], Whitwell. (1) The Wesleyan Methodists are numerous in the parish [Whitwell], and possess a commodious chapel, built in 1891-2 at a cost of £1,130, raised by subscriptions. It is a neat oblong building of brick in the Gothic style, with sitting accommodation for 350. The old chapel [see SMR 15236], erected 1858, is currently used as a Sunday school. (2) Examination of modern maps shows that the building has had substantial modern additions and is still in use as a church [2009]. (3)
