The Wesleyan Methodist Chapel

We now walk on from Wide Yard/West Street to examine Ilkeston’s Wesleyan Methodists.

Like her father and other immediate family members, Adeline was a member of the Wesleyan Methodist Church and consequently writes at greater length about this church than any other.
It should be remembered that many of the events she describes happened before her birth or when she was a very young child.

The following section discusses nearly all of Ilkeston’s pre-Victorian and Victorian Wesleyan Methodist Chapels, and their associated chapels, with the exception of the Bath Street Wesleyan Chapels built on the site of Samuel Fletcher’s factory and which you can find later as we walk down the west side of Bath Street.
