SHROPSHIRE NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Zion Welsh Calvinistic Chapel, Oswestry Zion Welsh Calvinistic Chapel, Park Avenue, Oswestry
Zion chapel is a well maintained building with its own burial ground attached. The chapel was built in 1868 at a cost of 1400, to replace the previous chapel (which was described as a "substantial stone structure" of "imposing appearance" seataing 500 worshippers) which was opened on 6th July 1836, but which had become too small for the congregation. An additional building was erected at the back of the present building in 1893, at a right-angle to the chapel. There is no commemorative stone on the chapel but there was a board outside in 2004, saying that there were services held there on alternate Sundays.
