Bothel WM Chapel, Cumberland

Grid ref NY182389

Bothel Chapel (i) was built in 1840 at a cost of £100. In 1851 there were 50 free and 85 other sittings. There were 125 in 1873. It was replaced by a new chapel in 1899. Most of the building was demolished a few years ago to make way for a housing development.

I was unable to photograph this building because my observations were all from a bus passing through.
