Full Description

A Wesleyan Methodist Chapel appears here on the 1st edition OS map. (1) By the 2nd edition OS map, the chapel has changed shape. (2) The Wesleyan Chapel in Beeley was built in 1892 at a cost of £900, on a site given by the Duke of Devonshire. It is a neat building of stone in the Gothic style, and is in the Bakewell circuit. (3) The chapel is still standing, but its current use is not known [2010]. (4) The current chapel may have been built in 1892 as claimed by Bulmer (1895), but perhaps this replaced an earlier one, as shown on the 1st edition OS map. (5)
