SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Bethel Primitive Methodist Chapel, Llynclys/Morton Common
Bethel Primitive Methodist Chapel, Llynclys/Morton Common

This stone-built chapel was erected in 1838. In the 1851 Religious Census there were reported to be 100 worshippers at their afternoon service and 132 at their evening one, with 30 Sunday scholars in the morning. The chapel was still in use in 2002, but its present state is unknown. However, it does not appear on the Methodist Church circuit plan for Shropshire. The building is in fair condition. There is no burial ground attached. On the datestone is written "BETHEL CHAPEL/ BUILT/ A.1838 D./ BY THE/ PRIMITIVE METHODISTS".
