SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Christ church Congregational Chapel, Oswestry
Christ Church Congregational (now U.R.C. & Welsh Presbyterian) Chapel, Oswestry
Christ Church, situated at the corner of Arthur Street and Chapel Street, was built in 1871-2 to a design by W.H.Spaull of Oswestry. It is a cruciform building of Cefn stone in the Gothic style. It has a nave with apse, transepts and a tower with a spire 120 feet high. It has sittings for 600 people. It replaced the former Congregational chapel situated a short distance away, which had been built only forty years previously. In recent years the church has joined the United Reformed Church and been joined by the Welsh Presbyterian congregation. The chapel is still used for religious purposes in 2003.
