Comments about this page

  • The opening of the chapel on 1st, 4th and 11th February 1838 is described by John Graham Thomas in the Primitive Methodist magazine of January 1839 (page 12). The land was given by Mr F Powell and the chapel had a burial ground attached to it. They had also started a Sunday school. Preachers at the opening included John Graham and Thomas Nash.
    It was in the Ludlow circuit.
