Full Description

According to Bulmer's Directory, there was a United Methodist Free Church in Stonebroom which was a commodious structure, built in 1867 at a cost of £900. Underneath there was a schoolroom, and behind it was another schoolroom and a vestry. Several alterations and additions were made in 1885, and an organ placed in the chapel at a cost or £182. (1) There is a Methodist Chapel (United Free) situated on High Street, Stonebroom on the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880, presumably that referred to by Bulmer in 1895. (2) Moderns maps show this building to have been demolished. (3) With the Methodist Union in 1932, this chapel, along with the Zion (Primitive) Methodist Chapel (SMR 12630), became part of the Methodist Church. Both chapels underwent changes and modernisation through to their eventual closure and demolition as the new building replaced them in 1975. (4)
