  • Thank you for this comment. The chapel shown was indeed Church Coppenhall, which was in North Street. It was at grid reference SJ7042557297 and a more recent photograph can be seen at https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/CHS/churchcoppenhall/NorthStreetMethodistWesleyan

  • This posting is a conflation of two distinct chapels : Church Coppenhall Chapel pictured, and Woolstanwood Chapel, which is correctly stated as being in Coppenhall Lane. Woolstanwood Chapel was built in 1870 on ground given for the purpose by Hugh Chadderton of Milton (Stoke) and cost £200 to build. For many years Mr and Mrs Darlington , local farmers, were mainstays fo the Woolstanwood congregation. An early son of the congregation was Rev George Bolderston who ministrered in the West Country between 1877 and his death in 1911.
    Woolstanwood Chapel closed some years before 1997 but the building is now a private house. It was a relatively small building and the seating referred to, and the picture clearly relate to Church Coppenhall Chapel
