Oddington Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Postcard posted in 1916. Publisher Percy Simms of Chipping Norton.

Martin Hannant tells us: “In 1903 a Methodist chapel was built on the green at the lower end of Upper Oddington on the initiative of a small group headed by George Kempson, a farmer of Oddington who had withdrawn his support for the parish church.  By 1937 the chapel had fallen into disuse and was sold for conversion to a house. In 1941 permission was granted by President of conference to sell the building.”

I cannot find the chapel on historic Ordnance Survey maps.  Where was it?

  • George Kempson was my great grandfather. A favourite quote of my grandmother’s was “In my father’s house are many mansions”.

  • The chapel appears on the 1922 OS map.
