The former United Methodist Free Church on Spark Lane, Mapplewell became business premises and in 2023 is in residential use as Bethel Gardens. Dated 1829, the two storied building is built of stone with a Welsh slate roof, hipped at the rear.
It is a listed building and you can see detail and a picture here.
Thanks to Jonathan Fox for the two pictures of groups outside the chapel, retrieved from his family archive. Paul believes the pictures were taken around 1910. Paul’s great aunt, May Bamford, is on the front row of the smaller group, third along on the right.
