Former Methodist chapel, Blacksmith Lane, Harmston

Former Methodist chapel, Blacksmith Lane, Harmston


A chapel is indicated on OS maps, and is extant, although it has been considerably altered. {1}{2}
Late 19th century red brick former Methodist chapel, now a workshop. It is considered to be a Significant unlisted building within the Conservation Area.{3}

The site was visited in 2009. The former chapel is still in use as a workshop. It was built in 1857 and closed in 1934. A defaced ashlar date tablet in the gable is inscribed Free Methodist but the date is unclear. It is a small red brick building with a gabled roof with a slate covering. The raised gable has stone copings. The broad three-bay front has a central segmental-headed doorway, with a pair of panelled doors, between 2 sash windows, and there are two bays of sash windows in the east elevation. The gabled elevation to the street has two glazing bar windows under pedimented arches, that to the left with margin lights. Workshop doors have been inserted below.{4}{5}
