Beamish Pit Village 4/7

Beamish - The Living Museum Of The North - Part 3

Pit Hill Chapel, which operated in the 1850’s, originally stood not far from the Museum’s entrance in what later became known as Beamish village. It was rebuilt in the Pit Village and was opened in 1990. It represents a typical Wesleyan chapel of the early 1900’s.

It does have an unadorned, protestant look about it, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Very much so, I'm showing the inside tomorrow.
A simple beauty, isn't it!
Brian Walbey: Very much a Baptist style of chapel Elizabeth.

The country was once full of Wesleyan chapels. The west country certainly is, many converted these days into residences
Brian Walbey: Even in a small place like Shepshed there are two chapels converted, one ot a house and one to a business premise.
As you say Brian a very typical chapel
Brian Walbey: I'm showing a picture of the inside tomorrow.
Non conformists the lot of them Brian.
Brian Walbey: Inded Chad, I'm reading abook about the design of churches and chapels at the moment.
Again, the stone fence is interesting.
Brian Walbey: We live in a land of boundary hedges, walls and fences over here Mary.

I bet this was well attended, Brian
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it most certainly was Lisl, most people went to church back in those times.
