Full Description

The Methodist chapel in Etwall is a handsome building, lighted by ten Gothic windows. It was erected in 1838, at a cost of £300. It will seat 250 persons. (1) The 1st ed. 25" OS map of c. 1880 shows a chapel on Willington Road, Etwall. It has been replaced with a larger chapel by the 2nd edition 25" OS map. It is named as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on the 3rd edition 25" OS map of the early 20th century. (2-4) The Wesleyans have a chapel in the village [Etwall], erected in 1883, at a cost of £1,002, in lieu of an old one built in 1838. It is a handsome building of red brick, relieved with white bricks and stone dressings. It is lighted by 10 pointed windows, and the interior fittings are all of selected pitchpine. (5) Examination of modern maps indicate that the building is still in use as a Methodist Church [2009]. (6)
