  • My archæology friend who supplied the photo from the context of her work with Chester University wonders whether it might have been one of the many chapels which changed hands between different denominations as the years passed.

  • Thank you. I was given the photo and the (mistaken) information by someone who wrote her MPhil thesis in archæology while studying chapels of this area. I will pass the correction on.

  • This was not a Wesleyan chapel. It was a Congregational church founded in 1904 as an ‘outpost’ to Malpas Congregational Church. Its foundation deed is in Cheshire Archives and Local Studies (Ref: ECC 7/3). The chapel has now been demolished to make way for building development.
