Cemeteries

We believe the Chapel did 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 1864, but we understand it was closed after 1995.

This is a substantial, and impressive, split-level building built to the east side of a steeply climbing road north of the Market Place, with 2-bay lancets facing the road, and 3-bay lancet windows to its sides, the main entrance being on the upper level.

According to Crich Parish website - Nonconformist Chapels in Crich (1977) the chapel is known locally as Mount Tabor, and it was "built by local quarrymen who gave their spare time to its building. Before and after their day's work in one of the quarries in the district they spent some time working on the construction of the chapel". Prior to the opening of the National School, the lower area of the chapel was used as a school room.

Today (2010), the Chapel is known as "Mount Tabor House" and provides bed and breakfast accomodation. It is not known when it was closed as a chapel, though it must have been some time after 1995, as it is still marked with a cross on my OS Street Atlas of Derbyshire dated that year.

Denomination

Now or formerly 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.
