Comments about this page

  • According to Wikipedia:”In 1874, a Mr. Thomas Blake gave land for the Wesleyan Methodists to build a chapel. In the simpler architectural style typical of the Primitive Methodists, this was used by the Wesleyans for 50 years. The Chapel was bought by the Parish Church in 1924, and used as a church hall until a few years ago. It was sold because it is not possible to install modern facilities including water supply and drainage. It is now in private ownership.”
