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 1843, and we understand it is still open.

Old Maps show that in the early days of this Chapel's existence, there was no made-up road leading to it; and on the earliest Maps, dated 1878-1885, it is shown surrounded by Coal Mines ("Tupton Green Colliery") on 3 sides. It is labelled as Methodist New Connexion, then post-1907 as "United Methodist", and lastly by 1975 as "Old Tupton Methodist Church".

The North Midland Railway reached Tupton in 1840, and the village began to expand from a series of scattered farmsteads into a sizeable township, with many of its residents employed in the Colliery. According to Old Tupton Methodist Church website, a New Connexion society was formed in the village in 1843, in the Colliery building, which later became the Chapel. Old Maps show it was a simple rectangular building aligned north-south, which - so far as it is possible to tell - survives in today's L-shaped building as part of the longer arm of the "L".

Denomination

Now or formerly New Connexion/United 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.

Resources

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Tupton, North Wingfield, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
