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 1903, but we understand it was closed in 1970, and the premises are now in secular use.

The location of a building labelled "Ebenezer Chapel (Wesleyan)" may be seen on Old Maps from 1903. By 1958-1965 it is labelled as "Northcote Road Methodist Church". This corresponds with a building visible on a Google StreetView image of 2008 which is in use by the 67th Kingswood 1st Mangotsfield Scout Group, and believed to be named "Baden Hall".

The building is constructed of dark stone, with white stone dressings, having a central doorway, on either side of which are tall pointed-arched windows formed of an oblong of six lights, infilled at the top with white slats. There is a similar, smaller window above the doorway, and above that, an oblong dedication plaque, which unfortunately, is no longer readable.

The following notice in The London Gazette of 14th February 1956 (p.928) indicates its registration for marriages:

A Building certified for worship named METHODIST CHAPEL, Northcote Road, Mangotsfield, in the registration district of Kingswood, in the county of Gloucester, was on 6th February, 1956, registered for solemnising marriages therein pursuant to section 41 of the Marriage Act, 1949. Dated 9th February 1956.

There is a photograph of it as "Baden Hall", belonging to the 67th Kingswood 1st Mangotsfield Scout Group on the Geograph website, which also provides the information that it was built on land which had belonged to the Hill House Estate, and was taken over by the Scouts in 1970.


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.

Further Information

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no affiliation with the churches or congregations themselves, nor is it intended to provide a means to find places of worship in the present day.

Please also remember that the former Northcote Road ("Ebenezer") Methodist Church is understood to be in secular use, so care should be taken to preserve the privacy of its occupants.
