Hanley Providence Methodist New Connexion church

From my old Methodist postcard album, the  last of the Methodist New Connexion Churches
Hanley (Providence, Upper Hanley Town Road) Methodist New Connexion (Demolished 1963). It was built in 1839 on land given by the Duchy of Lancaster. A new chapel was built in 1924 and in 1940 seated 440; it was still in use in 1958. The former chapel was described in 1851 as ‘the handsomest in the Potteries’ and was a brick building with a stone portico supported by Doric columns. A Sunday-school building was built at a right angle to the chapel on its east side
