W Statham, Esq., the present owner of the Green Bank, contributes £12 15s yearly towards its support. It is a brick building without any exterior embellishments, but the interior is well furnished with open pews of pitchpine, and the walls painted in imitation of stone work. There is a handsome marble tablet to the memory of W Statham, who died in 1844. (3) Green Bank Chapel was built in 1818 for a Congregational church formerly associated with Belper.
