The [former] Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, St.Mary's Street, Whitchurch

This handsome chapel was built in 1810 at a cost of 1,912. In 1851 the chapel had seating for 490 worshippers. On Census Sunday 30 March 1851 there were 250 worshippers at their morning service and 300 at their evening one. In addition they had 129 Sunday scholars. It was described then as "neatly pewed and fitted up with galleries". It was replaced by a new, gothic, chapel erected in St.John's Street in 1879. The building was used as Whitchurch's main post office for a while, but in 2002 was used for the Whitchurch Heritage Centre.
