WESLEYAN METHODISM AT OLD WHITTINGTON

I found this article about the opening of the new Wesleyan chapel at Old Whittington in the Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald 2nd November 1895.

At first I was unsure which chapel it referred to as it mentions it is situated near to the Revolution House, but after a visit to Whittington I realised it is the chapel on Church St. which is now the Seventh Day Adventist church. (There was another chapel just past the Revolution House on the main road).

The newspaper report is interesting for the information on the building of the chapel, but it is also interesting from a genealogical point of view as it contains plenty of names of people who lived in Whittington in the mid 1890’s.
