The church also featured in the Unknown section - Leslie was trying to identify a church with family associations.

My appreciation to Janet Gimber, who has advised that both Peniel chapels were Wesleyan Methodist, the larger one succeeding the older. The 1899 chapel then became the church hall, and was probably used as a Sunday School.
