By Christopher Hill

in 1861 a small chapel was built north-west of Nailbridge on Morse Road, below Ruardean hill. The chapel  closed in 1989.  Google Street View in 2009 shows it undeveloped but for sale.

Joseph Hibbs describes the laying of the foundation stone:

"The foundation-stone of a new chapel was laid at Rnardean Hill, Forest of Dean, on Monday, October 29th, 1860. Mrs. Mill's, of Monmouth, laid the stone, and delivered an appropriate address. The Rev. T. Uobson preached an impressive sermon ; the writer and Mr. R. Wall, of Lydbrook, took part in the service. A tea-meeting was held afterwards in the Baptist Chapel, at which about 1 50 persons were present. The public meeting was well supported. The proceeds of these services were upwards of £6. We have an improving society at the above place, and hope the intended place of worship will be the spiritual birth-place of many souls."
