Bakewell Wesley Methodist Church
Bakewell Wesley Methodist Church
The first Methodist Chapel in Bakewell was built in 1799 on the site in Matlock Street now occupied by London House. When it ceased to be a place of worship it was apparently demolished. The site of the present chapel was previously occupied by Messrs. Norman and Groom's timber works which subsequently moved to Coombs Road. The chapel bears the date 1866, the year when the building commenced, and it and the adjoining school premises were opened on the 4th June, 1867 by the then President of Conference the Reverend William Arthur M.A. author of 'Tongues of Fire'. The new chapel was known as the Bunting Memorial Chapel. On October 31st 1932, the Trustees, consequent upon the act of union of the Primitive and Wesleyan Methodist Churches, were asked to decide on a distinctive name for the Church. It was agreed that the name 'Bakewell Wesley Methodist Church' should be adopted and this name has persisted to the present. The church was extensively refurbished in 1991/92.
