Nottingham, Shakespeare Street United Methodist Church chapel and the school beneath were built of brick in 1854. They were situated on the north side of Shakespeare Street at its junction with Shakespeare Vs. The chapel seated 800 but the cost of construction was unknown in 1923. In 1940 the chapel estate consisted of the chapel which seated 800 in pews, a school hall and five other rooms. A modern map shows a synagogue on the site.

  • The building has now become the University Hall of Nottingham Trent University. They have made an excellent job of refurbishing the exterior so that it is possible to appreciate something of the impact which the building made when new.
