Castletown Methodist Church

Period: Modern

NGR Easting: 226344

NGR Northing: 467458

Description: Modern chapel.

The original Wesleyan Methodist chapel on this site was constructed around 1801.

It was superceded by a larger chapel in 1834, and the old building leased out to a corn merchant until 1867, whereupon it became the Sunday school. It still serves as the church hall today for Castletown Methodist Church.

The building is gable end on to Arbory Street but are stepped back from the building line of the houses to either side. Comparison with the original Ordnance Survey 1:2500 mapping of 1868 shows that the southern end of the building has been extended by about 4m.
