3/62 Former Sunday School, by
Methodist Chapel
Former Moravian, later Methodist Chapel, now store. 1750 for
Moravian Brethren. Flemish bond brickwork, tiled roof. Two-
window front, single storey. Gable to road, circular window high
up; right return central, boarded door, flat, rubbed brick head.
Either side 2-light mullion and transom window, cambered brick
arch; dentil eaves course. Congregation gathered following
George Whitefield's preaching, probably with use of a building by
1747; became Moravian soon after, for whom present building
erected 1750. Leased to Methodists early C19, as chapel, bought
by them 1846. Became Sunday School when new chapel built 1901,
and adjoining cottage rebuilt (neither of special interest). One
of very few surviving Moravian chapels in Gloucestershire.
