Zions's Hill Independent Chapel, Bomere Heath Zion's Hill Independent Chapel, Bomere Heath
This sandstone chapel, originally Independent, but since c.1879 Calvinistic Methodist, was built in 1827 at a cost of 226 3s. 8d. for a congregation meeting since 1824 at the "Crab Mill". In 1851 there were 14 free seats and 160 rented seats in the chapel. They had 36, 64 and 26 attenders at their morning, afternoon and evening services respectively on 30 March 1851, and had 24 Sunday scholars. The porch on the left, and the vestry at the right-hand end are later additions. It has a graveyard attached, but most of the gravestones have been removed. The chapel is still (2016) in use for Sunday worship. For a view of the chapel as it used to be, click here.
