Full Description

According to Bulmer's Directory, the Wesleyans built their second chapel in Whittington in 1894 from the plans of Mr. F. Blake, of Chesterfield, who produced a handsome Gothic edifice. It was built wholly of stone, from the quarry of Messers. Pierce and Hurst, near Darley Dale, and is seated to accommodate 280. At the rear is a commodious Sunday school. The total cost was £1,500, and the work reflects credit on the builder, Mr. John Sims. (1) There is a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel situated in Whittington on the 2nd edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1900, not shown 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 is still extant and in use as a church. (3)
