Full Description

According to White's Directory, there was a New Connexion Methodist Chapel in Clay Cross built in 1848. (1) There is a New Connexion Methodist Chapel situated in High Street, Clay Cross on the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880, with an Infants School and burial ground to the rear. Presumably that referred to by White in 1852. (2) The 2nd edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1900 shows the Infant School had been turned into a Sunday School. (3) The 3rd edition 25" Ordnance Survey map shows the chapel to be in use by the United Methodists. (4) Modern maps appear to show the older chapel as being demolished and replaced by a newer, larger building partly utilising the old footprint, still in use as a Methodist Chapel. The Sunday School is no longer extant. (5)
