(2, 3) Examination of modern maps indicate that the building is still standing and possibly part of 'Ireton's Farm'. (4) The Wesleyan's have a chapel here, built in 1814, and enlarged in and improved in 1890, at a cost of £120. (5) The chapel was built on land purchased from David Winfield of Hulland by John Goodwin in the year 1774. The chapel was the first public building in Hazelwood, there was only enough accommodation for 6 short forms and a cupboard like pulpit. The chapel was erected on the site of an old sawpit in 1813 and was twice enlarged. (6)
