  • The chapel as in the picture survived until 1929 until it was deemed structurally unsound and was demolished, and was replaced by a new Methodist chapel on the same site that opened in 1932. That chapel remains a functional Methodist place of worship but as ‘The Fishermen’s Chapel’ – see; http://fishermenschapel.org.uk/about-us/ .
    So, the chapel was not ‘replaced’ by ‘Leigh Wesley Methodist Church’, both are functioning to this day but serving the community in different ways.
