London William Street/East India Dock Road Wesleyan ?Reform Chapel, Greater London, formerly Middlesex

In 1851 this building was occupied by ”Wesleyan Methodists temporarily worshiping apart from the Conference”. It had been fitted up as a place of worship for about six weeks having previously been a carpenter’s shop. [This wording suggests a recent secession and hence that this congregation were Reformers rather than Association] The chapel had 40-45 free sittings and 130 others. William street was on the north side of East India Dock Road. This occupancy was brief. By 1855 a new chapel qv, had been built in Bath Street on the south side of East India Dock Road.
