Littledean Hill Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Forest of Dean

Littledean Hill Wesleyan Church

A mission to the colliers of Littledean Hill undertaken by George Robinson in 1821 proved successful and within three months a society was formed there. Robert Meredith’s house was registered for the mission but a barn was used for services attended by several hundred people. Following Robinson’s departure the Ledbury circuit supplied occasional preachers until the Wesleyan Conference, in response to Meredith’s petition on the society’s behalf, sent a missionary to the area. Soon afterwards, in 1824, a chapel was built at Littledean Hill; it had a gallery under which a Sunday school was held.
