11/51 Hadnall Chapel

- II

Primitive Methodist chapel, latterly Independent chapel, now disused.
Dated 1862 but possibly earlier. Red brick with grey sandstone ashlar
dressings; banded plain and fishscale tile roof. Bays divided by brick
pilaster strips carried up above eaves as piers with stone obelisk
finials. Stone plinth, cyma-recta moulded stone cornice, breaking
forward in front of pilaster strips as capitals, stone blocking course,
stone-coped parapeted gable ends, and central stone-coped parapeted
gable with partly defaced datestone: "MDCCCLXII/mine house shall be
called an house of prayer for all people". 1:1:1 bays; large round-
arched glazing bar sashes with stone cills and gauged-brick arches with raised
impost blocks and keystones. Central pair of 2-panelled doors
(beaded flush lower panels and raised and fielded upper panels); fanlight
with gauged brick arch and raised impost blocks and keystone, and probably
mid- to late C19 timber framed gabled porch on low brick and stone
walls. Rear with glazing bar sashes but fewer embellishments. Left-
hand return front has glazing bar sash with stone lintel and cill.
Small vestry set back to right with stone plinth, stone eaves band
and integral brick end stack with stone coping; glazing bar sash to
right with stone lintel and cill and mid- to late C19 three-panelled
door to left with stone lintel. Interior: moulded cornice and
5 enriched plaster ceiling roses, that in centre the largest. Large
wooden pulpit and raked bench seating to south with flush-panelled
backs. The trustees of the chapel have (February 1986) the indenture
(dated 6 December 1862) recording the purchase of the land from Mr
John Powell, a wheelwright from Hadnall. The wording of the document
implies that the land was bought for the construction of the chapel
but various architectural features suggest an earlier date for the
building. It is possible that the chapel was built on rented land
which was only later bought by the trustees. The 1839 tithe map for
Middle shows a building approximately on the site of the present chapel.
The building was sold on 19 March 1953 and then became an Independent
chapel. Shropshire Records Office, Middle tithe map (1839), document
No. 4684/Ti/2.
