Baptist Chapel and Burial Ground, Broughton Road, Carlton-Le-Moorland

Chapel, Broughton Road, Carlton-Le-Moorland


A chapel is indicated on the Ordnance Survey County Series 1:2500 map of 1905. The building appears to survive. This may be the Baptist chapel and burial ground which was recorded in 1856. {1}{2}

The site was visited in 2009. The extant former chapel at this site is probably the Particular Baptist chapel and burial ground of 1788. It is now disused but it is not possible to see if the burial ground continues to exist. It has been used by a seed supply company at some time. There were Baptists, such as John Ward, in Carlton-le-Moorland as early as the late 17th century and three Baptist licenses were issued for Carlton-le-Moorland at that time. A Baptist license issued for Bassingham at that time was linked with one of the Carlton-le-Moorland Baptist groups. The surviving building is constructed of red brick, with raised gables with brick copings and kneelers, and a pantile roof covering.The eaves cornice has dogtooth brickwork. The broad front elevation is of three bays with a central porch but has been extended to the west by one bay at some time. It appears to have also been of three bays originally with traces of a central doorway (now blocked) within the eastern 2/3rds of the present building. The windows have round-arched heads and moulded keystones. A cottage abutts to the west.{3}{4}{5}
