SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Pant Glas Wesleyan Methodist Chapel,  Selattyn [former] Pant Glas Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Selattyn
This chapel was built near Burnt House (whose owner Mr Jones gave the site) in 1876 to a design by W. Ranger of London and built by Messrs Morris, Chaplin & Corney of Oswestry. The total cost was about 320; Mr Thomas Haslehurst of Runcorn gave 100 guineas towards the cost of the building. The foundation stone bore the inscription "This memorial stone was laid by the Rev. R. Harper, August 28, 1876". In a bottle underneath the stone were placed copies of newspapers, a penny, a halfpenny, a circuit plan and a document recording the details of the day's events and the names of the trustees. The chapel opened on Tuesday the 19th December 1876. An extension at the northern end of the chapel was built in 1909. The building is no longer a Methodist chapel (it closed sometime after 1938) but has been converted to residential use. Fortunately it still bears a considerable resemblance to its former use.
