SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

[former] Waters Upton Wesleyan Methodist Chapel [former] Waters Upton Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.
Until this chapel was built the local Wesleyan Methodists met in a room in the former workhouse. The site for the chapel was given by the Duke of Sutherland and the chosen architect was Mr Bullock of Wellington who designed it in the gothic style, and the builder was Mr John Carver of Wellington. The stone laying ceremony took place on Friday the 8th August 1902 and the chapel opened on Friday the 12th December following. The cost of the chapel was about £800 to £900, and could seat about 150 worshippers. The chapel closed sometime before 26th February 1980 when it was de-registered as a place of worship. It has now been converted to residential use.
