Full Description

There is a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel situated here on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880. (1) It is in use as a Sunday school by the 2nd edition 25" OS map of c. 1900, and a new chapel has been built to the east (see SMR 21684). (2) The Wesleyan Chapel, Bath Street, was built in 1873, and has a Sunday school attached. (3) The Wesleyan Chapel that was formerly on Bath Street was built in 1873 by Frederick Shaw, on the site of the former 'Fletcher's Factory'. It was demolished in 1973, and the site is now occupied by a commercial store [2004]. (4) There appears to be some confusion over this chapel, which appears to have been built in 1873 and later used as a Sunday school, and the later chapel to the east (SMR 21684), which is likely to be the one demolished in 1973. (5) The building is no longer extant [2011]. (6)
