Aspull Methodist Church on Wigan Road. Genuki says it was originally Wesleyan, and founded "before 1869", though evidently not in the present building. SD 6128 0802. Peter Morgan. Interior view, Mike Berrell (2012). Link.

The 25" map of 1909 marks a Church on Chapel Street at its junction with Wigan Road in New Springs. It was still active into the second half of the last century. The Wigan Road end of Chapel Street has gone, as has the church. The housing built on its site was seen by Streetview in 2023. Can you advise what it was? SD 6015 0710.
