The Methodist Church, Weaverham, is an active Methodist church located in Forest Street, Weaverham, Cheshire, England. It is in the Northwich and Winsford Circuit of the Chester and Stoke District.[1] The church is designated by English Heritage as a Grade II listed building.[2]

History[edit]

The church is dated 1878, and was designed possibly by Edmund Kirby.[2] It replaced an earlier chapel built in 1835 in Chapel Street.[3]

Architecture[edit]

Built in orange English bond brick, the church has terracotta dressings, and a roof of Marley tiles. It has a T-shaped plan. The entrance front facing the road has two storeys and is in three bays. The lateral bays are canted and contain lancet windows in each face and in each storey. The central bay has a gabled doorway framed by buttresses. On each side of the doorway is a lancet window. The upper storey contains a three light window under a gable. Inside the church is a gallery of tiered seats, and a central pulpit decorated with floral panels on the front, and pierced balustrades on the sides.[2][4]
