SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Primitive Methodist Chapel, Stanwardine in the Fields Primitive Methodist Chapel, Stanwardine in the Fields
This chapel was erected in 1869 at a cost of about 150. The cornerstones were ceremonially laid on 14th May and the chapel opened on the 1st of August. of that year. The original doorway was situated in the centre of the long wall facing the street, but a porch and new doorway were built later at the left-hand end. The datestone reads: "Primitive Methodist Chapel/Built A.D. 1869/Come in thou blessed of the Lord/Wherefore standest thou without". The chapel was still in use in 2002 and in good condition, however it seems to have been redundant in 2005 and on the market in 2008 and subsequently given planning permission for conversion to a dwelling.
