[former] Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Tern Hill
The first Wesleyan Methodist chapel at Tern Hill was built in 1843. In the Religious Census of 1851 it was reported that the seating capacity of the chapel was 64, and the number of worshippers was about 40. This chapel was replaced by a new chapel as for some years they had needed a larger chapel.. The foundation stones of the new chapel were laid on the 15th August 1907 by Mrs Dunn of Tern Hill Villa who gave them the site. The chapel was designed by Mr E. A. Craig of Market Drayton and built by Messrs Wood & Son of Market Drayton at a cost of about 500. The size of the building was 32 ft x 18 ft, and had a schoolroom attached; it was built of Wollerton brick. The chapel was officially opened on Thursday 6th February 1908. The chapel had closed before 1977 when it was photographed by the Wesleyan Historical Society and has now been demolished.
