Full Description

There is a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel situated here on the 2nd edition 25" OS map of c. 1900 that was not extant on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880. It appears to have superseded an earlier chapel to the west, which is then used as a Sunday school (see SMR 21683). (1-2) The Wesleyan Church on Bath Street has 1000 sittings. (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' [this is actually more likely to be the earlier chapel - see SMR 21683]. It was demolished in 1973, and the site is now occupied by a commercial store [2004]. The Primitive Methodist Chapel on Bath Street [SMR 21685] was also demolished in 1973, and members of both denominations amalgamated to form St Andrew's Methodist Church, which was built on the site of the former Primitive Methodist Chapel. (4) There appears to be some confusion over this chapel, which is likely to be the one demolished in 1973, and the earlier chapel to the west that was built in 1873. (5)
