Salem Chapel
Salem Chapel
A Methodist Independent Chapel, at Wingerworth, Derbyshire, built in 1849 by Joseph Fletcher. He was a colliery steward at the local ironworks and built the chapel against the wishes of the catholic Hunloke family of Wingerworth Hall. Opposition was so strong that permission to use stone from local quarries was withheld and money had to be borrowed to bring stone in from outside the area.
