Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

The 1st ed. 25" OS map of c. 1880 shows a chapel on Wilne Street, Sawley, although does not specifiy the denomination. (1) The Chapel is still in use at the beginning of the 20th century but by the time of the 3rd ed. OS map of c. 1920 it has been demolished. (2, 3) It is possible that this is the Wesleyan Chapel that Bulmer mentions in 1895. "The Wesleyan Chapel is a neat brick structure, built about 10 years ago to supercede an older one." However, Bulmer also mentions a Primitive Methodist Chapel in Sawley and as no locations are given for either chapel and their denominations are not marked on any of the historical maps consulted it is not possible to know which chapel is which.
