4/85 Mottram
19.7.79 Church

- II

Chapel. 1791, altered 1836 and 1852. Stone plinth,
rendered walls, slate roof and hammer-dressed stone wing of
1852. 3 bays with outshut to rear and small later wing to
right. The only external features are 3 round-headed
windows with keystones and a plaque recording the name of
the church. Interior much altered. Principal interest is
historical as it was built as a Methodist meeting house,
changed to the New Connexion in 1803 and to a Congregational
church in c.1850. It is said to be the oldest surviving
Methodist chapel in the Manchester area which is still in use
as a place of worship.
