Shrewsbury Bethesda Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Shrewsbury Bethesda Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Frankwell Wesleyan Methodist chapel  in New Street, in the Frankwell district of  Shrewsbury, was opened in 1870, although the society had been meeting in a roo in New Street since 1846.

Street View in 2020 shows it with a carved stone tablet over the porch saying Wesleyan Sunday School and Google describes it as a pre-school..
