Bebington, St. Andrew, on Church Road. SJ 3330 8392. Steve Bulman. Link. Grade I listed. Lower Bebington Methodist Church on Bromborough Road. The history section of the church website (scroll down) dates it to 1928. The preceding chapel (at left in the photo) pre-dates a map of 1899, where it's labelled as Wesleyan. SJ 3339 8417. Steve Bulman (2021). The 6" O.S. map of 1899 marks a Meth. Chap. on Bromborough Road at SJ 3364 8388. Not marked on the 25" map of 1912, a pub was standing on the site in 2009, and housing was being built there by 2012 (both from Streetview). I've been unable to discover anything else about this chapel. Life Church stands across the road from Bebington Railway Station. Circa SJ 3331 8493. Steve Bulman (2021). Link.
