Twenty years after erection the chapel was enlarged for the first time. Until the mid 1950s it catered for the families of labourers but when the social make up of the area changed so did the chapel. In 1962 the chapel was partly reconstructed and enlarged and in 2013 it was extended again at the back. In 2015 it has a beautiful worship space. It is a thriving church with an ageing congregation.

  • Hello,
    We are clearing out my parents attic and have found a decorative trowel which was apparently used to lay the foundation stone for the Dore Chapel.

    The inscription reads “Presented to John Roberts Esq on laying the Foundation Stone on the primitive methodist chapel, Dore. November 1860.

    Would this be something that you would be interested in? Regards
