SHROPSHIRE NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] English Baptist Chapel, Salop Road, Oswestry
This large building (built at a cost of nearly 4000) has an imposing stone front and tower but brick sides and back. It was designed by John Wills of Derby. Its foundation stone was laid on 14 June 1891 and it opened on 6 March 1892. It had space for 500 worshippers, and had 3 vestries at the rear. It replaced the old Baptist chapel on English Walls. There is unfortunately no commemorative stone on this building. The last service held there was on 5 November 1995. The congregation then met in temporary accommodation "Graylands" in Weston Avenue & when this became too small, they purchased a warehouse & renovated it. The new building, called "Cornerstones", situated at the corner of Lower Brook Street and Roft Street, was opened on 8 June 2002.
