Cemeteries

We believe the Church does NOT have a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1875, and we understand it is still open.

Kelly's Directory of 1932 records the Methodist Church at Blackwell as built in 1875 with seating for 500. It was registered for solemnizing of marriages and had a minster's residence attached. Kelly also mentions there was a Wesleyan chapel erected the following year, at Berrister (Berristow), but I have been unable to find it on Old Maps. The settlement of Berristow presumably grew up around Berristow Colliery, but it was already labelled as "Disused" on the earliest detailed Map which is available - 1880.

The original Methodist Church in Blackwell itself has also become a casualty of mining, and of the demands of the 21st century, as that also been demolished, and replaced by the present modern structure. See Blackwell Methodist Church website for more information.

Denomination

Now or formerly Wesleyan Methodist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
