Woodseaves Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Woodseaves Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Woodseaves Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was built in 1896-7. The Wesleyans previously met in premises belonging to a Mr. Hill.  The chapel was still in use in 1941 but has now ceased to be used for religious worship. It has been sympathetically converted to a house and extended in modern times.

    “NEW WESLEYAN CHAPEL AT WOODSEAVES. On Thursday afternoon the ceremony of laying four foundation stones of the new Wesleyan Chapel at Woodseaves took place in the presence of a large congregation. For some time past, services in connection with the denomination have been held on the premises of Mr. Hill, and under the auspices of the Market Drayton circuit. The several ladies who officiated at the stone-laying were Mrs. T. Mulliner, Mrs. Lea, Mrs. Vernon, and Mrs. Bower, while their united contributions placed upon the stones realised the satisfactory amount of £50. At a meeting held in a large tent in the evening addresses were delivered by the circuit minister (the Rev. W. Cumberland), Rev. T. G. Hartley (chairman of the district), and other ministers of the neighbourhood. The chair was very ably occupied by Mr. Lea, of Tarvin.”
