Wymondham Wesleyan Methodist preaching place, Leicestershire

Wymondham Wesleyan Methodist preaching place is first mentioned as a chapel and was purchased in 1841 by Dr Hay and later became a school for girls and infants. In 1851 it provided 73 free and 104 other sittings. It was not mentioned in 1873 but a preaching place was reported to seat 30 in in 1881 and 1891. It was probably given up when the chapel opened in the same year.
