Blackshaw Head chapel anniversary

blackshaw2The 200th anniversary of Blackshaw Head Methodist Chapel will be celebrated on Sunday 14 June, and all are welcome to attend.

There will be an informal service at 4.30pm for all the family, followed by refreshments and a chance to look at a display of old photographs.

The chapel was originally built on the site of a bull baiting ring, and is in a classic Georgian style. A Sunday School wing was added in 1838, and within five years had 240 scholars and 66 teachers. It is still well used by community groups.
