The former Ebenezer Chapel, converted to residential use. The text of the date-stone can be clearly seen on this Streetview of 2018, and says "Methodist Free Church 1862". A 1940 list of Methodist places of worship indicates that this had also been a United Methodist church before the 1932 merger. The documents inventory in the National Archives suggests that it may have closed no later than 1967, even though it's still indicated as active on an O.S. map of 1976-7. SW 5172 3066. © Paul E. Barnett (2014). Grade II listed.
