Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Hillhouse Lane, Sadberge (Sadberge)

Sadberge Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was built 1869 and closed in 1991 (1). Streetview images (2) show that it is a small red-brick building with a steep pitched roof and circular windows with stone dressings on each gable. The western wall has a double porch protruding from it with roofs at 90 degrees to the rest of the building. The eastern wall has three windows with stone lintels, slightly curved at the tops. Images suggest the church is now used as a private residence. The church once contained a First World War memorial although it is unknown if this has survived since the church closed (3).
