  • The Chapel became the Thanet and District Reform Synagogue . It still looks much the same from the outside, but there are plans to modernise the building.
    It has not burnt down

    I was part of the Sunday school from 1960 until 1972

  • I think it subsequently burnt down. My dad often preached here, and on the occasion I accompanied him (probably in the mid 1970s) he also played for them on their harmonium. Despite having to do all the work I think he still stuck to the five hymn sandwich!

    At that time there were at least six nonconformist places of worship in Ramsgate: three Methodist, Baptist, Congregationalist (dated from the Great Ejection of 1662) and Presbyterian – now everyone from those traditions worships in Hardres Street United Church (see My Wesleyans and My Methodists).
