Welcome to the world of one-place studies! Twenty-six of our members are sharing something in their particular place for this year's A-Z Blogging Challenge. Head to Rillington where Pam Smith has some chapels to tell us above.

Bethesda Chapel, Lowmoorgate, Rillington

In my place of Rillington, North Yorkshire, there were three nonconformist chapels. The first to be built was the Wesleyan Chapel in 1805 on Railway Street, which is now Lowmoorgate. The next to be built in 1818 was the Independent Bethesda Chapel and a Grade II listed building which is also on Lowmoorgate (pictured above). The third was the Methodist Church (Primitive) built in 1880 on Westgate. Rillington accommodated approximately 700 people in the 1851 census, and together with the Anglican Church of St. Andrew, the nonconformist inhabitants were involved in keeping the faith in a variety of ways.

To read more about the chapels, members should check out the March 2017 issue of Destinations in our members area.
