  • SHREWSBURY CHRONICLE, 17 October 1862, page 5.
    “MUCH WENLOCK.
    NEW PRIMITIVE METHODIST CHAPEL.
    A new chapel was been erected lately near the Goods Railway station, at a cost of nearly £300. It is a neat building, and very suitable for the purpose intended. A tea-drinking was held on Monday evening last, when nearly 150 sat down to tea and plum cake. The tables were presided over by the Misses Bill, Bailess, Clare and Bennett; Mrs. G. Nicklin, Mrs. Lawson, Mrs. Smith &c. Mr. W. Perks, of Coalbrookdate, was called to the chair and was supported by Mr. Macleary, Rev. Mr. Jones, and Mr. J. Porter. Several speeches were delivered, and attentively listened to by the audience.”
