Birmingham, Erdington, Station Street, Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Warwickshire

Erdington, Station Street, Wesleyan Methodist Chapel premises were built in stages from 1869. The first two structures on the site were two buildings towards the back. One of these seated 400 in 1873. The chapel at the front of the site was built between 1886 and 1913. A photograph displayed on a notice board Erdington, Station Street, Methodist Church Centre at the time of my visit shows that it was in the decorated Gothic style. The building consisted of a nave and four gabled transepts joined together to occupy its full length on each side. There was a projecting porch and vestibule. There were 610 sittings in pews in 1940. There was also a hall and eight other rooms. The chapel was closed in 1971 to be demolished and replaced by Erdington, Station Street, Methodist Church Centre.
