Chapel of the Month – September 2014

George Street Chapel

George Street Chapel

September’s Chapel of the Month is the charming but unlisted former joint Methodist-United Reformed Church chapel in George Street in the brewing town of Burton-upon-Trent.  Known originally as George Street Chapel it was built of brick in a Grecian style to a design by Thomas Simpson of Nottingham and was opened in 1860. Now dwarfed by the neighbouring Coors brewery it is no longer in use as a place of worship and was most recently used as a beauty salon.

An excellent summary of Nonconformity in Burton-upon-Trent can be found on the British History Online website.
