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 the 1990s.

The first noted appearance of Coombe Dingle Methodist Church on Old Maps is in 1903. At the time, it was one of only 2 buildings in Dingle Road, which had been made up only as far as the present Dinglewood Close. After that, a footpath followed a south west route to pass Ebenezer House, toward Clack Mill, a corn mill on the River Trym. Another landmark on the map was Coombe Rocke, on the opposite side of Coombe Lane to Rayleigh Road.

Phil Draper, on his ChurchCrawler website, describes it as "a rather good tin tabernacle of the 1890s ... with a pretty wooden bellcote with fleche on top" and "a good example of a gothic tin church". It was, unfortunately, demolished in the early 1990s, and a modern red brick residence now occupies the site, but happily Phil's website has a photograph, showing it had cream walls, and a green roof.

Seemingly, the Registrar General's database has not caught up with its closure, as it is still listed (as a Methodist Church, in Coombe Dingle, Westbury on Severn) in Places recorded by the Registrar General under the provisions of the Places of Worship Registration Act 1855 (2010)


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.

I have found many websites of use whilst compiling the information for this database. Here are some which deserve mention as being of special interest for Westbury on Trym, and perhaps to Local History and Places of Worship as a whole.

The above links were selected and reviewed at the time I prepared the information, but please be aware their content may vary, or disappear entirely. These factors are outside my control.
