Helton Methodist Chapel

This former Wesleyan Chapel in Helton in Cumbria was built in the mid 19th Century. In 1873 it had 120 sittings; by 1940 these had been reduced to 95 in pews.[1] It closed as a place of worship in the 1990s and subsequently appears to have been converted to residential use. The chapel is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.[2] Historic England give the date built as 1857; other sources note 1867/8.
