SHROPSHIRE'S NONCONFORMIST CHAPELS

Primitive Methodist Chapel, Much Wenlock
Primitive Methodist Chapel, King Street, Much Wenlock

A congregation of Primitive Methodists had been meeting in Wenlock since at least 1851. In the 1851 Religious Census they had between 34 and 55 worshippers at their two services on 30th March. They built this chapel in 1862 in polychrome brick at a cost of 300. A Sunday school was erected adjacent to the chapel in an identical style in 1883, at a cost of 150. The porch was added in 1909. The buildings were still being used by the Methodist Church in 2017.
