SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Cleehill  Wesleyan Methodist Chapel [former] Cleehill Wesleyan Methodist Chapel
This rubble-stone wall is all that is left of a chapel at Cleehill. It is clearly marked on old Ordnance Survey maps. However, there is no surviving commemorative plaque. It is believed to be the former Wesleyan Methodist chapel erected c. 1784 which had 192 free sittings and 120 [rented] sittings in 1851, and a reported attendance of 200 at their morning service and 250 at their afternoon service, plus 72 Sunday scholars on 30 March in that year. The building is now derelict and falling down, following closure c. 1902.
