Iron Church, Frodsham
Iron Church, Frodsham
Originally built as a chapel of ease c1874 , St. Dunstan's became the temporary parish church during the restoration of St Laurence's in nearby Overton from 1880 - 83. The chapel proved unexpectedly popular, particularly with the elderly, saving many the tiring climb up to Overton. It has remained in use as a church and is today an Evangelical Chapel. In 1995 it was relocated 3 metres to the left to allow the construction of Chapelfields Road. The bell, a prominent feature above the Main Street entrance, is said to be a replica of a bell from I.K. Brunel's ship, the "Great Eastern", broken up on Tranmere beach.
