Lower Brailes Wesleyan Methodist Chapel

Like many villages, the parish of Brailes had two Methodist chapels – a Primitive Methodist one in Upper Brailes built in 1863 and a Wesleyan one in Lower Brailes.

Martin Hannant tells us “The Wesleyans met in a house initially and later used the Quakers meeting house. Later they built a chapel in the centre of the village. This was sold some time after the Union in 1932 and they moved to the Primitive Methodist Chapel. That too is now closed.”

The chapel, which had a burial ground on its eastern side, was on High Street, next to the row of modern shops. High hedges mean it is not visible on Street View, but retains the same footprint
