NONCONFORMITY.

A room registered for protestant nonconformist worship in 1819 and a house registered in 1838 (fn. 61) were evidently for the Congregationalists or Independents (fn. 62) who built a chapel in 1839. (fn. 63) In 1851 there was no minister but the chapel drew congregations of up to 100. (fn. 64) The chapel, a building of red brick at Churchend, was regularly used in 1968.
