Abstract:
This document is an archaeological standing building survey of The New Connexion Methodist Chapel (former), 27-28 Tower Square, Tunstall, Stoke on Trent (SJ 85897 51218), commissioned from Archaeological Building Recording Services (ABRS) by Mr A. Machin in advance of the proposed conversion of the upper floors of the building to residential use. The building was originally built as a New Connexions Methodist Chapel in 1821. It is brick-built. Historical sources indicate worship ceased following the construction of a larger Chapel nearby, the building was sold in 1852 and converted to retail use. The early conversion has severely affected the original building, as a result there is very little coherent evidence of the building's early life as a Chapel. A ceiling rose exposed on the first floor may be part of the original Chapel, but this cannot be confirmed with any certainty. Documentary sources record that a gallery was added to the Chapel to increase seating capacity and cartographic evidence suggests that the Chapel may have been extended towards the west either during its use as a Chapel or soon afterwards. It is difficult, therefore to confirm what, if any of the current building is part of the original Chapel. The true importance of the Chapel is its historical significance, reflecting the rise of 19th century non-conformity in strong working class areas of the country. It also reflects one of the multitudes of sects and break-away missions seen in non-conformity. An important indication of
