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 in 1885, but we understand it was closed after 1964, and the premises are now in secular use.

Though only a small village, Preston on Stour has a plethora of old, and Listed Buildings. Amongst them are the Old School House, half of which is now the Post Office, and the other, premises of Sean Feeney Furniture Maker, and "The Dell", a timber-framed building dating from the 16th century.

The former Baptist Mission Room is situated next door to "The Dell", and opposite Lower Farm. The Victoria County History series: A History of the County of Gloucester, Volume 8: Cleeve, Deerhurst and Tibblestone, and the lower divisions of Tewkesbury and Westminster (1968), pp.81-89 (Preston on Stour) describes it as "a small brick mission room" built by the Baptists in 1885. According to their account, it was still in regular use in 1964.

It is built of brick, with a large central porch, above which is a datestone of '1885', and has since been converted into a very attractive modern residence.

Denomination

Now or formerly Baptist.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
