Union Street
GMCA, England
New build

The Wesleyan Chapel in Union Street was re-opened last week after partial reconstruction and conversion into a central mission hall at a cost of £3,000. On the ground floor at the front of the chapel has been placed a reception hall 47 feet by 11 feet, exclusive of a bay. A main entrance to the hall from Union Street has been erected and there is a similar entrance adjoining the schools. Two new fireproof staircases have been erected. The elevations are in Ruabon brick with terra cotta dressings, the style being that of the Georgian period. The interior has been finished with faience and tiled dados and terrazzo floors. The interior of the chapel has also undergone extensive alterations. In both the chapel and the school electric light has been installed. Mr T Butterworth of Manchester has been the architect.
