Occleston was part of the Sandbach Circuit, and appears on the Sandbach Primitive Methodist Circuit Preaching Plan for 1899 (copy at Englesea Brook Museum).

In 1960 it was described as a ‘Brick building with Pews seating 60; No schoolroom’. (Report for the Department of Chapel Affairs, 1963, compiled from returns made on 1 December 1960.

It was not known what happened to the Chapel after it closed in 1961. It was thought that it may have been turned into a house.

However this photograph shows the charred remains of the Chapel (2010).

Can anyone add any more information?
