Broseley Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Broseley Wesleyan Methodist chapel

The date when the first Broseley Wesleyan Methodist chapel in Duke Street was erected is uncertain, but is probably 1796-7.

It was replaced by a new building in 1971.

A Methodist School was built on the opposite side of Duke Street in 1841, a building which still stands today.
