Mick it would be nice if you could give a bit more information abt the chapel.

This Methodist Chapel was built on the site of some houses, the back wall of the old houses were incorporated into the building, the remains of old blocked up windows can be seen in the back wall of the chapel from St Thomas Churchyard.

Looks like a warehouse to me.

It's a pity the lettering on the tablet can't be seen. I agree with Wiganer it doesn't look like the usual Chapel building, but I don't suppose that matters to the Faithful who attend there.

Item 5624. Some more pictures of above. Posted either from this Mick or another Mick. Grade 2 listed building. Had nearly 3000 views on those pictures.

Apparently it is a Wesleyan Chapel and not the Primitive - the comment from a person who attended there.
I have always loved the stone buildings. It intrigues me as to how many generations of people have walked over the thresholds of them over the centuries.

Helen of Troy I know nothing about it, except its grade 2 listed and a its on a busy narrow road, so if it did get sold off the builder would have to close one lane of the road with traffic lights just to work on it.
Gooooglebox will have more information on it if you want to dig deeper

The tablet reads: Wesleyan/ Methodist/ Church & School/ 1849.
