The Methodist Chapel, Eggington

Methodist Chapel, EggingtonThe Methodist Chapel was built in 1845 on the site of a previous Wesleyan place of worship. The schoolroom at the back is the oldest part of the structure. The main building at the front is three feet higher than the back, and was enlarged in 1867 by the addition of a balcony with semi-circular topped windows facing the road.

The returns for the chapel in the 1851 Religious Census showed that at the afternoon service there were 29 attendees, and at the evening service there were 77.

Congregations dwindled over the years and in 1983 the chapel was closed. The building is now used as a private house.
