Waters Upton Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Waters Upton Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Waters Upton Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, built on land belonging to the Duke of Sutherland, was opened in December 1902. Until this chapel was built the local Wesleyan Methodists met in a room in the former workhouse.

The chapel closed sometime before  1980 when it was de-registered as a place of worship. It has now been converted to residential use.

You can read more about the chapel on Janice Cox’s Shropshire’s No-Conformist chapels website here.
