Full Description

There is a chapel situated here on the 2nd edition 25" OS map of c. 1900 that is not present on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880. (1-2) The Methodist New Connexion first met in the old Wesleyan Chapel in Market Street [see SMR 21689]. This location was not very successful, and a new chapel was built in Stamford Street in 1889. It is a neat Gothic structure, comprising nave, side aisles, and an octagonal turret and spire. In the front elevation is a large Gothic window of five lights, formerly in the chapel in Market Street. The choir gallery and the open pews were also taken from the same edifice. There was an explosion in 1892 that resulted in much damage to the building. (3) The former Methodist New Connexion Chapel is now in use as a carpet warehouse [2004]. (4) Looking at Google Maps Street View, the Gothic window from the old Market Street Chapel is no longer in the front elevation of this building [2011]. (5)
