Providence Chapel, Stone Street, Cranbrook - Tunbridge Wells

Strict Baptist chapel, no longer used for worship. 1795 with early to mid C19 alterations. A temporary scaffold roof has been erected to limit water ingress. A feasibility study has been completed recommending its use by the community, and restoration led by a potential preservation trust. The current owner is considering this option but the building's condition is rapidly worsening.
