SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Newport Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Avenue Road, Newport
This chapel, designed by George Bidlake, was built in the gothic style in 1876-7, and opened on 24 May 1877. It replaced a previous chapel which had been built in 1829-30 in Upper Bar, which by 1876 had become "old, decayed and not at all equal to the requirements of the town". The old chapel, of which the upper storey is still recognisable as a chapel, is now occupied by a tile shop. The present, 1877, chapel has now closed and was sold in 2001. The Methodist congregation has joined with the United Reformed Church in Wellington Road and they meet in the Trinity Church.
