1879 map shows small building to rear of property
1898 map shows New Methodist Chapel

Black Park Primitive Methodist Chapel, Halton, Chirk, Wrexham stands at NGR SJ 3020 4010. A bit of a mystery stems from the information available on this site. The Chapel is described as built in 1880 in the Simple Gothic Style with a Gable entry plan. This is backed up by the early OS map dated 1898 ( revised ) clearly showing the new Building and is called a Methodist Chapel. However the previous original map dated 1879 ( surveyed – a year before the new build ) shows a much smaller slightly annotated building to the rear of the property boundary from the road. OS Annotations usually means Chapel Church or School. Was this a earlier Chapel ? Any way the Chapel still stands but as far as I can tell is unused and would need eyes on clarification to clarify its status. No attached graveyard is known and its closure date is unknown.
