NONCONFORMITY.

No record of nonconformity before the 19th century has been found. In 1814 a house was used for nonconformist worship, (fn. 64) perhaps by Methodists, and in 1885 (fn. 65) a Wesleyan chapel was built at the south end of the parish on the Bristol road. (fn. 66) The chapel, in the Gloucester circuit, had a small congregation in 1967. It is of brick, with courses of blue brick, and has narrow pointed windows.
