Please join us on a social trip to Bethesda Methodist Chapel, Hanley, a redundant chapel standing at the corner of Albion Street in Hanley.

It has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building, and is now under the care of the Historic Chapels Trust. The building has been known as the "Cathedral of the Potteries", and "it was one of the largest and most ornate Methodist town chapels surviving in the UK".  It first came to national attention in the 2003 BBC 2 "Restoration" series. This vast, handsome place of worship in the centre of Hanley has long been a cause for concern, as its condition rapidly deteriorated. HCT secured sufficient funding to undertake a repair and upgrading scheme in 2007 and the first two of three phases have now been completed. For further information visit Bethesda's website.
