This was a small United Methodist church1 located
on the corner of the ramp, at the lower end of Grimshaw Lane, and
Rose Bank. It was known as the 'tin tabernacle' because of its
construction - timber frame clad with corrugated iron sheets which
had been bought as a flat pack! It opened in 1887 and closed at
the end of 1956, when the congregation merged with the Wesleyan
Methodists at Knowles Green (Wellington Road) to become Bollington
||The only pictures we have are of an unknown wedding taken
in front of the building in 1950. The groom has a striking
resemblance to the infamous Lord Lucan! If you know who it
really is, please let me know by sending
me an email.
Although named the United Methodist church, the congregation merged
with other Methodist congregations into the united Methodists at
the Wesleyan Methodist
church in Wellington Road.
