Barking Wesleyan Chapel
Wesleyan Chapel Committee, 1869

This building, designed by Pocock, Corfe and Parker , and opened in 1869, could seat 511 according to the 1873 Accommodation returns.
It was replaced by Barking Central Hall, which itself has now been replaced by a church built in 1958, but recently refurbished.

  • I came across your web site by accident. I have photos of both the outside and the inside of this building. The drawing shown on your web site is virtually as the photo except that a fence is shown to the left of the building whereas my photo shows a road. The photo has tramlines running past the building but, of course, the photo is much later than the drawing. A much grander building had been planned but Sir Frances Lychett, a major donor, insisted that a more modest building be erected. I have more information if required
