Cemeteries

This Church has (or 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 1843, and we understand it is still open.

According to the British Listed Buildings website (it is Grade II Listed), this is a former Union Chapel, dated 1843 with its name on a plaque at the centre front. This does not appear to be visible on our photograph, but the front windows, set high above the level of the porch roof are. The British Listed Building account draws attention to these, mentioning them in relation to the sides, which have "2 long round-headed radial glazed 12-pane sashes in painted plain stone surrounds" ... and ... "two similar 9-pane to front above central gabled porch". Certainly, this makes them an unusual feature.

The British Listed Building account says the interior was not accessible to their study, but apparently an original gallery, and original fittings may survive.

Denomination

Now or formerly Congregational.

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