Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
The former Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was used as a village hall until 1933, when the new hall was built.  Aerial photographs taken by the Royal Air Force in 1946-8 show the site of the village hall as a clear plot, with no building sited here.  The hall is shown and labelled on modern MasterMap data.  There was no village hall in Winsford until 1952. Fund raising to build a suitable hall began during the Second World War.  A commemorative ashlar stone is set into the front elevation of the village hall. It states: IN THE YEAR OF THE CORONATION / OF / QUEEN ELIZABETH II / THIS STONE WAS LAID BY / THE RT. HON. THE LORD HYLTON / HER MAJESTY'S LIEUTENANT FOR SOMERSET / APRIL 1953.
