Former Providence Chapel, Chapel Road, Charlwood - Mole Valley

Originally built in Horsham as part of a barracks for troops to repel an invasion by Napoleon. Moved to Charlwood in 1815 and opened as a non-denominational chapel. Timber framed with weather boarding beneath a slate roof, now in need of repairs to roof, rainwater goods, timber structure and boarding. No longer a place of worship and purchased by a local trust in 2013. The Heritage Lottery Fund grant aided repairs and conversion for community use should be completed late 2018.
