Full Description

There is a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel and burial ground marked here on the 1st edition OS map. (1) The Wesleyan Methodist Chapel on St George's Road was erected in 1813. It is a good stone building, seated on an eminence and approached by a flight of 24 steps. A gallery is carried round three sides, which increases the seating capacity to 340. The chapel is provided with an excellent organ, built by Hardy of Manchester. Adjoining the chapel is a small cemetery. There is a large day school in connection with the chapel that is situated on High Street. (2) The chapel appears to have since been demolished, but the site remains undeveloped within the burial ground [2010]. (3)
