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 1866, but we understand it was closed after 1974, and the premises are now in secular use.

This building enjoys Grade II Listed Building status - see British Listed Buildings website for details. According to their account, the rectangular datestone over the entrance porch dates it from 1866. It is a single storey rectangular building, with "two tall 12-pane fixed casements within round-headed surrounds with radiating glazing bars at the top" on either side of a central doorway within a 19th century gabled timber porch. Cast iron railings on a low drystone wall at the front are included in the Listed status. Evidently it closed after 1974, as it is still marked with a '+' on my OS 1:50,000 map of that date, by which time (presumably) it was no longer of Primitive Methodist denomination, and had joined the Methodist Church of Great Britain. At the time of its Listing (12 Feb 1988), it was used by the Chedworth Silver Band as a practice room, though today, it would appear to be in domestic use.

Denomination

Now or formerly Primitive 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.
