Hyson Green UMC

This chapel and school, was on the corner of Gregory Boulevard and Noel Street in the Hyson Green district of Nottingham. The architect was Frederick William Dixon (1854-1935) who had been a partner in Potts, Pickup and Dixon before running his own practice. Like Edward Potts he was a Methodist, serving as a Circuit Steward and Sunday School Superintendent. He also served as Mayor of Southport.

The chapel replaced one on Lindsey Street and was designed to seat 360, although by 1940 the accommodation was calculated at 180.

It is no longer in Methodist use, being the Hyson Green Community Centre. As can be seen from Bill Smith’s photograph (courtesy of British Methodist Buildings), the building is no longer in a sylvan setting.
