Babbinswood Wesleyan Methodist Chapel
There was an earlier Wesleyan Methodist chapel in Babbinswood before this one, as it appears on the 1874 25 inch O. S. map. The foundation stone of the chapel in this photograph was laid on 4 June 1903. It was still in use as a Methodist chapel in 2002 but by 2014 had closed and been converted into a residence. There was also a Primitive Methodist chapel in Babbinswood which was in existence by 1871, when it was mentioned in the Shrewsbury Chronicle of 17 November. It appears on O.S. maps of 1900, 1924 & 1938. The chapel's location was just north of the Wesleyan chapel on the same road.
