Chichester, Wesleyan Chapel and School
The Architect, 1875

This assemblage of chapel, school and minister’s house was designed in an Italianate Gothic Revival style in 1875 by Alexander Lauder (1836-1921) of Barnstaple, who was responsible for a number of other Wesleyan chapels. Built of Portland stone, the façade was gabled with small towers. The chapel was approached by an inclined road planted with ornamental shrubs. At the time of the 1940 Statistical Returns, it could seat 330.

It was demolished when the Methodist and United Reform Churches in Chichester moved into shared premises.
