Cemeteries

We believe the Church 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 before 1899, but we understand it was closed in 2013, and the premises are now in secular use.

Lechlade Methodist Church is an unusual building. There is a rectangular building on the left, with a two-light lancet window on either side of a central porch with a round-arched doorway, On the right, is a wider building, of 4 bays, with another porch over a pointed-arched doorway occupying the leftmost bay, and with 3 two-light lancet windows to the other bays. At the apex of the porch is a quatrefoil motif in relief, which echoes that at the apex of the gable on the left. At a guess, the left hand building is the original church, which became a church hall when the larger building on the right was built.

Its first noted appearance on Old Maps is OS 1899-1900 1:2,500, but in recent years, in common with many churches and chapels, its congregation has declined. As a consequence, it has been closed for worship, and a planning application (Reference :13/00557/FUL) registered on 12th February 2013 for change of use of the Church, and Church Hall to a dwelling, for which see the Cotswold District Council Online website.

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.
