Millom, Holborn Hill PM Chapel, Cumberland

By GW Oxley

In 1940 Holborn Hill Chapel had 430 sittings on pews and there was a schoolroom and two other rooms. It had been closed by 1980 and the site is now occupied by two bungalows. All that remains of the chapel is the perimeter wall. The bungalow situated towards the rear of the site, closest to the site of the chapel is called Chapelstones and from its appearance and in contrast with the other bungalow the masonry (local stone for the walls and ashlared red sandstone for the quoins) for this building could well have been recycled from the chapel. There is a photograph of what I think is this chapel on display at the Millom Discovery Centre.
