Name:
Fleet Baptist Church and associated burial ground, Fleet

Summary:
Fleet Baptist Church and associated burial ground, Fleet

Location:
FLEET, SOUTH HOLLAND, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
PRN 24026
Fleet Baptist Church and associated burial ground as depicted on the Ordnance Survey map of 1905.{1}
Fleet Hargate General Baptist church. The first chapel on this site was built in 1764 for a society which originated at Holbeach in about 1681 as a branch of the Spalding church; the society met at Fleet from 1690 but also held meetings at Lutton and Gedney. The chapel at Fleet was enlarged in 1782, 1803, 1830 and 1842 and was replaced by the present building in 1876; this has a tall three-bay gabled front of brick with stone dressings and tall round arched bays enclosing two tiers of windows. There are several gravemarkers in the burial ground that date to the late 18th and early 19th century.{2}
This is a building identified as of historical interest by the South Holland District Council Local List. It is a good example of this style of building of this period and survives with only a few changes to its original construction. The Sunday School may also be located on this site. {3}
The chapel, Sunday School and burial ground were visited in 2010. The chapel is built of red brick with gault brick and ashlar dressings and the gabled roof has a slate covering. The raised gable has stone copings and kneelers and a stepped cornice in gault brick. The Sunday School alongside is built in similar style with a front gable of one bay but with the same ornamental features as the chapel. {4}{5}{6}{7}
