This Church had 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 1810, but we understand it was closed in 1971.

The first "preaching house" was opened in New Mills in 1766 in the High Street (SK0014485820) but this was superseded in 1810 by a chapel in St George's Road. The old building was then demolished and in 1844 replaced by a 'Wesleyan Day and Sabbath School'.

The "new" building is described in the town's history provided on the New Mills Town Council website) as a stone building, with one bell and clock. It was however closed in 1971 (as per Derbyshire Record Office's Non-Conformist Register Guide), and is now demolished, but its burial ground (a substantial plot), and monuments, including 19th century table tombs, remain - to be found on the corner of St George's Road and its meeting with Hyde Bank Road. The building of 1844 also survives, now New Mills Revival Church, and a Listed Building.

More details, including a photograph of the demolished chapel, may be found on the New Mills Town Council website - A Brief History of New Mills. The page notes that "the town was described as a stronghold of Methodism", and also notes two other chapels - a Association Methodists stone chapel, erected in 1838, "which, with four cottages, cost £700", and a Primitive Methodists chapel of 1827, costing £500 - both are mentioned in White's Directory of 1857. The former is probably what was known as Mount Pleasant Chapel (SK0000385713), but I have been unable to identify the Primitive Methodist Chapel of that date, so it seems probable it was superseded by Spring Mount Methodist, founded in 1876.


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.
