The former Bethesda Baptist Chapel (1821) on South Street is now in use as an Arts Centre. Another view. ST 79019 98367. Both © Carole Sage (2016). Grade II listed.

Grade II listed - note that this states that it was a Methodist Chapel - this seems to be erroneous. Carole advises that there are on-line references to a Wesleyan Chapel in Uley, but our searches of various old maps have failed to find it, and others have evidently been along this road before - see here. Do you have any local knowledge to help solve this mystery?
