Full Description

The Methodist Chapel at Sandiacre was erected in 1826. It is a neat brick building that will seat 700 persons, and cost £580. (1) The building adjoining the Comet warehouse on Town Street is thought to have been built as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in 1826. It was replaced in 1878 by a chapel at the junction of Church Street and Lenton Street [see SMR 25117]. It was converted in to a grocer's shop in the late 19th-early 20th century, and was known as 'The Italian Warehouse'. It survived as a grocer's until the early 1970s, at which time it still retained many of its original features. At this time, adjacent properties were demolished, and Comet electrical store was built on the site, incorporating the former chapel in to its design. (2) The building still survives as part of the Comet store [2011]. (3-4)
