Lawley Bank Mount Gilead Methodist New Connexion chapel

Lawley Bank Methodist New Connexion chapel was built in 1838-9 and had seating for about 200 people.

Although the chapel was renovated in 1891, it closed around the 1910-12 and was demolished in 1938. The site, almost opposite the Co-op , has been cleared.

    “LAWLEY BANK.
    CHAPEL RE-OPENING. The trustees of the Methodist New Connexion Chapel have been under the necessity of spending large sums of money in the renovation of their chapel, and, as will be seen from the advertising space, arrangements are being made for its re-opening tomorrow, when they appeal for special aid.”

    Page 1 of the same newspaper, contains an advertisement for the above, stating that Mr. B. Owen of Willenhall would preach in the morning and evening, and the Rev. E. W. Cook of Dawley, would preach in the afternoon.
