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. The Wesleyans had been meeting there since at least 1862. At the end of December 1867 these local Wesleyans asked for permission at the Ludlow quarterly circuit meeting to sell the cottage (described elsewhere as a "chapel") where they worshiped and to build a new & commodious gothic chapel to seat the same number of worshippers as the chapel at Little Stretton. Permission was granted. However, the five foundation stones of this chapel were not laid until Tuesday 13th August 1878 and the chapel opened on Tuesday 15th April 1879. The public tea afterwards was held in the nearby Primitive Methodist chapel. By 1922 the chapel was disused, so it was demolished and the building materials were used to erect the Wesleyan chapel at Cleestanton.
