SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Ebenezer Methodist New Connexion Chapel, Eaton Constantine
Ebenezer Methodist New Connexion Chapel, Eaton Constantine
Members of this connexion in Longwood had long wanted a chapel but could not obtain a site there. Eventually they managed to obtain a site in the contiguous village of Eaton Constantine. The foundation stone of this chapel was laid on Good Friday the 25th March 1864, and it was opened for divine worship on 11th September 1864. It was said at the time that "The chapel, though comparatively small, is a neat structure, stands well, and is an ornament to the village". The chapel was 30 ft long and 21 ft wide. It was reportedly built on land formerly belonging to Richard Baxter & was near to the house where he lived. By 1908 the chapel belonged to the United Methodists which it continued to do until c. 1926. It is not listed in local directories after that. The chapel was demolished in 1968.
