SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Lightmoor Methodist New Connexion Chapel, Dawley [former] Lightmoor Methodist New Connexion Chapel, Dawley
A Methodist New Connexion meeting had been held at Lightmoor since 1849 & in 1865 this small chapel was built. The locals called the chapel "Fat Bacon" on account of members keeping pigs to raise money for the building of the chapel. The chapel closed c. 1938.
