Iv done a lot of churches / chapels, I mean seriously 50+ but still haven't got "that shot" u know everything symmetrical, so here's my best shot :rofl
Anyway just flicking through folders & this is one that's been covered a fair but but I haven't posted so here's my take.

This Chapel was designed by George B. Ford of Burslem, and built on Chapel Street in 1878, when it was known as Wesley chapel. It is now known as Trinity Methodist Church.
At the time of the 1940 Statistical Returns, it could seat 450.
The chapel is now a listed building which probably explains why nothing has happened with it.

Was it only Methodists who made use of the height of their buildings by constructing a second storey consisting of pews around a large central opening, enabling the congregation seated there to see the preacher? The only such church I have attended for a service is in Buckfastleigh, Devon - when I was a boy.

Dont think so, My mum is a deacon of a baptist chapel & that too has a balcony!

Great report, and nice symmetrical photo 😀! I've recently realised that when Prince Charlie and his pals grade a building , its more often than not a death warrant for that building, it gives us lot some interesting places to visit ( until the vandalising idiots find them) but pushes refurb costs way above what most people can pay, shame.
Wonderful report, great photos as usual and a lovely engaging write up. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting thought that listing a building invites arsonists, etc. The Firestone tyre factory in west London had its Art Deco buildings destroyed by demolishers brought in by the owners over the weekend before it was due for listing on the Monday. A similar thing happened to the old Kensington Town Hall - thanks to the officials of the council of the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. No one was called to account for either act of supreme vandalism.
