SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Newport Trinity Church Newport Trinity Church, Wellington Road
The Independent cause began in Newport in 1765 when a chapel was erected. However the congregation soon folded and was not revived until 1792 when the chapel was re-opened. A new chapel was built in Beaumaris Lane in 1803. This chapel was sold (probably c.1832) & subsequently converted into two cottages, which have been demolished within living memory. A new chapel was built in Wellington Road in 1831-2. It was described by contemporaries as "a neat stuccoed structure" & "handsome". It is still in use as a chapel today, having joined the United Reformed Church in 1972, and been joined in 2001 by the Methodists of Avenue Road. It is now (2016) called the "Trinity Church".
