Photograph supplied by & Copyright of Mike Berrell. Union Chapel,
The church does not have a graveyard.
It was founded before 1891. It is now closed, but we do not know the date of closure .
The Wesleyan Methodist church was formed in the 18th century from religous societies founded by John Wesley and his preachers. It suffered many secessions, but was the largest Nonconformist denomination in the 19th century. In 1932 the Wesleyan Methodists joined with the Primitive Methodists and the United Methodists to form the Methodist Church of Great Britain.
