St. Paul’s Methodist Church, Wood Lane, Yoxall, DE13 8PH

The parish of Yoxall had two Primitive Methodist chapels both located out of the main village settlement. One was to the east at Woodhouses, and one to the west at Woodmill. Woodmill chapel is found north of Yoxall turning left off the A515 road towards Hoar Cross. The first chapel was erected in 1823, but present building was built 1870. It is a Gothic structure surrounded by a graveyard. It remains open in 2017, latterly part of the Burton on Trent circuit, now as a part of the Trent and Dove circuit.

  • Joseph Wait is my 4x great uncle too. I will make the effort to visit the chapel soon as my family still live in Staffordshire.

  • Joseph Wait was my 4th great uncle. I have been to this church and found it a wonderful experience.

  • There is a standing memorial in the graveyard, to the right of the path to the chapel that is in memory of the founder of the church.

    It reads: In Affectionate Memory of Joseph Wait of Wood- Mill, the founder of this church. He was born March 2 1793 and died in the faith of that gospel which he had for 50 years so faithfully and earnestly preached to others February 9th 1871.

    ‘His Lord said unto him, well done thou good and faithful servant thou hast been faithful over a few things. I will make thee ruler over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.’
