  • It is good to hear this building is still in Methodist use. This story illustrates a common point: that names change, as do the relative importance of neighbourhoods over time.

  • I’ve added a picture taken in 2022 by Mark Churchill of the former Wesleyan chapel. As Mark comments, the chapel is one of the few in the area that is still home to a Methodist congregation.
