SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Wesleyan Methodist Chapel,  Leamore Common, Wistanstow [former] Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Leamore Common, Wistanstow
There were two Methodist Chapels in Leamore Common. At the end of December 1867 the local Wesleyans asked for permission at the Ludlow quarterly circuit meeting to sell the cottage which they used as a place of worship and to build a new gothic chapel to seat the same number of worshippers as the chapel at Little Stretton. Permission was granted. However, the foundation stones of this chapel were not laid until August 1878 and the chapel opened on Tuesday 15th April 1879. By 1922 the chapel was disused, so it was demolished and the building materials were used to erect the Wesleyan chapel at Cleestanton.
