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 1865, but we understand it was closed in 1980.

Kelly's Directory of 1923 informs us of an iron church at Inchbrook, viz: "the church at Forest Green is an iron building, erected in 1865, consisting of chancel, nave, western porch, and a small turret with spire containing one bell and will seat 160 persons. The register dates from 1864."

Its location is still marked with a '+' on my OS Map of 1984, but it was demolished in 1980. It is however commemorated in the names of houses built on its site - Churchside, Pulpit House, and Chancel Lodge. There is a map showing its location, and a photograph of it shortly before its demolition in an archived issue of the free community paper for the parish of Nailsworth - Nailsworth News, Issue 092, May 2009.

Denomination

Now or formerly Church of England.

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