Sheffield, Crookesmoor Road, St John's Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Yorkshire

In 1940 St John’s Wesleyan Methodist Chapel had seating for 740 in pews. There were three schoolrooms and sixteen other rooms.

This is an enormous building erected on a site which falls away steeply from the roadway affording accommodation on several levels. It can be compared with the long demolished chapel at Maryport in Cumbria which was built on a similar but perhaps more precipitous site. The building is now in residential occupation.
