  • The 1897 Primitive Methodist magazine (page 155) reports the enlargement of the chapel at Walford Heath in the Hadnall station. All the cost had been raised, which was not always the case.

    Primitive Methodist Chapel. Some time ago the friends of the above place met together to consider the advisability of enlarging and renovating their chapel. Mr. T. Howells, contractor, Ruyton-xi-towns, undertook the work at a cost of £130, and Thursday, October 3, was the day fixed for the laying of the memorial stones … A short service was held in the chapel, conducted by the Rev. S. Evans, circuit minister, and the Rev. T. Morgan, Congregational minister, Ruyton-xi-towns. Then came the laying of the memorial stones … a number of friends also laid bricks … tea was provided in the chapel … The proceeds of the day amounted to £33.”
