Wesleyan methodist chapel

The history

Built in 1841 for a reported cost of £160. The church was eventually closed in September 1993 due to the excessive costs of repairing the building. However, a local pressure group was formed to campaign for its reopening, which happened six months later. The congregation then moved into the adjoining school whilst around £60,000 of renovations took place. The church was rededicated in November 1999. Disused since 2016.

The explore

A beautifully preserved chapel that sits to the SE of the town centre... It's understood that the congregation were ferried to the church on weekends as most were unable to make the journey... but the elderly driver recently retired due to ill health which as left the chapel disused since 2016... Additionally the costings to repair the boiler outweigh demand which signals the end of the chapel in it's current form. It's understood that a transfer of use from chapel to community outsourcing projects is on the cards... So with this in mind we decided to pay the old chapel a visit. It's not often we have come across a religious building that is as beautifully preserved as this... the upkeep here is truly astounding. An original organ with Alter... polished floors and pews that looked like the day they were installed. also of note was the immaculate nature of the embroidery work which we presume would have been carried out by congregations new and old... Hopefully these will find new homes and will be as cared for their have they have been here.

In the end most places get 'turned over' whether it be kids smashing stuff up in the hols or pikey's stripping stuff, it's not just the exploring community that have an interest in buildings etc..

I'd say if unsure, don't post at all, however it won't make a difference if someone is determined

the problem is that it is just a church and not a particularly nice one at that. It may be clean and is a good find for sure but its nothing special nor is it a sensitive site which could land you in any bother for visiting. There are loads of things that have been kept off the public forum yet still get smashed to shit within a matter of weeks. that's not the purpose of NP really.

Can I ask what is the purpose of Non-Public, if your not putting hidden gems like this in?
Essentially, places where you could get into bother if certain people found out you had been; places that are "high-security" that take a lot of effort to get into, that kind of thing - the kind of places where problems could be caused by posting them online. That doesn't include places where somebody couldn't be bothered to check on it, or left the front door open - that's their problem, and not a problem that NP would fix.

What a stupid question and selective quote when the previous line of my comment already explained it "a sensitive site which could land you in any bother for visiting". which sums up briefly what AndyK has explained above.
