Moreton Mill Wesleyan Methodist chapels

Moreton Mill Wesleyan Methodist chapels

There are two former Wesleyan Methodist chapels at Moreton Mill, still standing next to each other. The earlier, smaller one to the south, was built in 1846; ;he larger one to the north,  was erected in 1875-6. There is an addition at the back of the larger chapel dated 1936 and a burial ground attached.

Both buildings are still in use in 2020 and in a good condition.

You can read a little more and see pictures of both chapels on Janice Cox’s Shropshire’s Non-Conformist chapels website here.

  • WELLINGTON JOURNAL, 3 June 1876, page 8.
    “MORETON MILL.
    OPENING OF THE NEW WELEYAN CHAPEL. On Tuesday last, the new chapel at this place was opened, when impressive sermons were delivered by the Rev. A. M’Aulay, Chairman of the Birmingham District, to two very large congregations, which entirely filled the chapel. The proceedings of the day were greatly facilitated by the kindness of Lord Hill in lending a spacious marquee, in which an excellent tea was served to about 440. The entire proceeds of the services and tea amounted to upwards of £80.”
