Bethesda Methodist Chapel, Albion Street, Hanley - Stoke-on-Trent, City of (UA)

This former Methodist chapel was built in the C19; it is known as the 'Cathedral of the Potteries' and its interior is practically intact. The Historic Chapels Trust has completed external repairs with the help of grants from Historic England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund: other minor repair works have been under taken with support from The Friends group. Whilst the Trust is looking at options to increase the use of the building, works to refurbish and install toilets within the detached single storey vestry block will be completed in 2019.
