    Default Loxley Chapel - December 2013


    1st post for me on here and I've chosen one that's just been added twice!! I'll try and post a couple of different shots.

    History

    Built in 1787

    When it was finished consecration was refused because the builders declined to put in an east window, perhaps because they ran short of funds. later it was sold by auction for £315, and became an Independent chapel. The people who bought it held a meeting in it and as was the custom in those days, adjourned to the "Rodney" public-house to discuss the question of how to raise the money. Of one of the early ministers it was written that he
    pleased some while he grieved others and profited none. there were early pilgrimages of people from Stocksbridge, and concerning one of these there was on record an item for 9 shillings and 6 pence, spent of ale which was drunk at Loxley. (Taken from Sheffield Independent 29th May 1914)
