Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

There is a Wesleyan Reform Methodist Chapel within this area on the 1st and 2nd edition OS maps. These maps appear to be indicating this particular building, although this is not certain. (1, 2) The Wesleyan Reform Union has a chapel capable of accommodating 80 in Grindleford. It was built in 1831. (3) A larger Methodist Chapel was built and opened in 1905, to replace this earlier, smaller chapel (see SMR 5521). (4) If the early historic maps are in fact labelling this particular building as the Methodist Chapel, then it appears to still be extant and in use as a private residence [2010]. (5)
