I know nothing of the history of this chapel, but I do know that Shropshire was at the heart of a vigorous Primitive Methodist movement in the 1800s, and that it was from Shropshire that the movement spread to my own home area, via Brinkworth, Shefford (Berkshire) and Micheldever. After I saw this chapel recently, some words of the Prophet Amos came strongly to my mind: “Woe to those who are at ease in Zion, and to those who feel secure… but are not grieved over the ruin.”
