SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Congregational Chapel, Lyth Hill
[former] Congregational Chapel, Lyth Hill
A house belonging to Richard Hodges was licensed for Congregational worship at the County Quarter Sessions in October 1787. A site for a chapel was given afterwards to the Congregationalists and the chapel built with the assistance of Sir Richard Hill of Hawkstone in 1791. In 1851 the chapel had 120 free sittings for worshippers, and had 40 worshippers at their afternoon service on Census Sunday 30 March 1851. The chapel was painted and a harmonium purchased in 1876, and a Sunday school established in 1880. In 1889 the chapel was renovated and a new harmonium bought. Services were last recorded there in 1930. The chapel has been converted to residential use since then.
