Chapel Street Wesleyan chapel in Bridlington was designed by William Botterill, an architect based in Kingston-upon-Hull who was also responsible for the design of a number of Wesleyan chapels in Lincolnshire and the East Riding. Built to seat 940, by 1940 the accommodation was for 876. The chapel was demolished in 2004, so Keith Guyler’s photograph on British Methodist Buildings illustrates the final period in the chapel’s life. Another photograph, and an account of the chapel’s final days may be found here

  • Hi, I have just come across the silver trowel that was used to lay the foundation stone in 1872 by Mr Poshill of Field Cottage, Bridlington
