Full Description

Two of the cottages of The Square were converted into a chapel to replace a preaching room. The buildings have been demolished with the terrace sites visible as earthworks. The chapel has either been demolished or entirely incorporated into a modern house on the site. [1,2] The cottages were probably converted into the chapel in the 1870s and continued in use until 1972 when the building was converted into a private dwelling. [3]
