Full Description

According to Bulmer's Directory, a new Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was erected on the Moor in 1874, by four brothers of the Bassett family, in lieu of the old chapel at Rattle, which is now used as a Sunday School. (1) There is a Methodist Chapel (Wesleyan) situated on Moor Road, Rattle on the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880, presumably that referred to by Bulmer in 1895. (2) Modern maps show this building has been demolished and replaced by a residence. (3) The New Chapel was erected in 1874 and was used until recently as a Sunday School. The slate roof was pitched at a surprisingly steep angle. The building has now been demolished and replaced by modern housing. (4)
