Crookes Wesleyan Chapel, School Road, Crookes, Sheffield


The first drawing of the Crookes Wesleyan Chapel in School Road, Crookes, Sheffield. It was taken from the Wesley Hall site and shows the Chapel that was built in 1836, the first that was built in Crookes


The photograph below was taken in 1908 and shows the Chapel just before the congregation moved to Wesley Hall (1912).  


The drawing is a very good likeness apart from the sign - it states Crookes Wesleyan Chapel,whereas the photograph has the single word Wesleyan. It is the first photograph I have seen of the original Chapel

The building is still there but it is now flats and apartments
