    On Monday the foundation stone of a new Wesleyan Chapel was laid at Hadley, near Wellington, by Mr. J.H. Poole of the Trench; and an address was delivered by the Rev. J. Priestley, of Wellington, to a numerours body of ladies and gentlemen. A collection amounted to £21 16s. 9d. About 400 persons partook of tea in an adjoining field. Towards the cost the Messrs. Groom have given £100. Mr. Turner gave the ground, and the Trench Iron Companay £75. Other friends have promised assistance; and it is expected that the estimated cost – £700 – will in the course of a few months be all raised.”
    SHREWSBURY FREE PRESS, 17 November 1866, page 8.
    “The thriving village of Hadley has just had an addition to its buildings in the form of a new Wesleyan chapel. It is a very neat structure, and very neatly fitted up in the interior, and is justly regarded as doing great credit both to the architect, Mr. Bidlake, of Wolverhampton) and to the contractors (Messrs. Millington & Son, of Oakengates.) On Friday (yesterday) the opening services commenced, and that distinguished minister, the Rev. S. Coley, of Birmingham, preached in the afternoon and evening. Tomorrow a minister of considerable ability, though not much known in this neighbourhood we believe, the Rev. J.P. Dunn, of Wolverhampton, it to be the preacher.”
