The first Oswestry Wesleyan Methodist chapel was in Coney Green (off Salop Road), opened in 1812. After the building of a new chapel in 1870, the old building was sold to the “Good Templars”, a temperance organisation. By 1924 it had become a cinema.
The successor Oswestry Wesleyan Methodist chapel was built in 1870. It was a large Gothic building that served until 1967 when it was demolished.
You can read more about the chapel and see a picture on Janice Cox’s Shropshire’s No-Conformist Chapels website here.
In addition to these English Wesleyan chapels, Oswestry also supported Welsh Wesleyan chapels
