|||Oak Road Congregational Chapel. (Wortley)
|Oak Road Congregational Chapel once stood at the junction of Oak Road and Stapleton Road.This is an early view showing crowds of people in front of the building.There are signs and placards but it is not possible to decipher them. The Chapel was built in 1876 at a cost of £7,000 to designs by architect, Mr.T.Ambler.
In its heyday the chapel could accommodate a congregation of 900, and the school to the east of the building,built in 1866, catered for 450 children. In 1942 the chapel was demolished due to bomb damage and the site was still vacant shown on an O.S.map for 1952. Eventually, houses were built on the plot.
