Full Description

This building is named on the 1st edition OS map as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel. (1) The Chapel on Wesley Street was built in 1812-3. In 1834 a new lease of land allowed the Chapel to be enlarged to double it original size. At this time, there was a painted figure of Moses with a tablet of stone behind the pulpit. In 1869 there were more building alterations. An organ chamber and vestry were built and the figure of Moses removed. (2) There is a building named Wesley House situated here on modern OS mapping [2010]. It has roughly the same dimensions, and it seems likely that this is the former chapel. (3)
