United Methodist Free Churches registered by 1867

Westmorland - United Methodist Free Churches registered in 1867
This work incorporates historical material provided by the Great Britain Historical GIS Project and the University of Portsmouth through their web site A Vision of Britain through Time (https://www.VisionofBritain.org.uk).

This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. As registration was valid until cancelled, however, there may be duplication: i.e.  both the old and new chapels in a place may be listed. We have also discovered that the official location may not be the same as the name by which the chapel is commonly described.

Unless otherwise stated each of these places of worship is described as a chapel.

The upper Eden valley had been a particular area of strength for the Wesleyan Methodist Association, and remained so following the creation of the United Methodist Free Churches in 1857. The entry for Murton in the Registrar General’s list tells us that the reformers had been numerous enough to take over the existing building.

The numbers on the list relate to places, and match those on the map. The base map is provided under this licence
