Roweltown WM Chapel, Cumberland

Grid Ref NY 494716

The Wesleyans acquired Roweltown Chapel in 1891 for £300. The site seems to have been leasehold until the freehold was purchased in 1934. The premises then consisted of a chapel, a cottage and outbuildings. The chapel was built of stone and had 170 sittings on forms in 1940. It was probably closed sometime before it was sold for £215 in 1948-50.
