Wesleyan Day School and Chapel

The history of the Wesleyan Chapel on Merrimans Lane has now been added to the site on the “Places of Worship” Menu Tab, along with some photographs.  It would be lovely to identify some of the pupils in the sepia picture, one of my favourite old photos of the village.

I have also added some extracts from the Day School Log Book 1898 -1905, which make for very interesting reading.   It would appear the Trustees were practically held to ransom for a time by various Headmistresses and assistants, requesting numerous hikes in salary, to stay on and teach. Does anyone have any ancestors who attended the chapel or school?  It would be lovely to hear from you
