Westminster, Scott Memorial Chapel

Scott Memorial Chapel, Horseferry Road, Westminster
Wesleyan Chapel Committee, 1870

The building illustrated was on Horseferry Road, and presumably replaced by Westminster Central Hall. Further information would be welcomed.

The architects, Wilson and Willcox, had as their senior partner James Wilson (1816-1900) who had designed Kingswood School in 1851, and Headingley College in 1867.

It was built to seat 1500.

  • James Wilson was also the architect for Westminster Training College, which was situated at 130 Horseferry Road between 1851 and 1959. The College was also home to the offices of the Methodist Education Committee, and this was the first college chapel, created as a memorial to its first Principal, Rev. John Scott.
