"Listed 18th Century Chapel"

This small stone chapel was built in 1729, the result of a bequest in the will of Mr W. Roncksley. The chapel, which is still used for church services, is now a listed building. The rooms adjoining the chapel were once used as a school. In the well-kept chapel gardens stand the original Fulwood village stocks. These were used for the punishment of local criminals for minor offences, which could include drunkenness and sabbath breaking. Once a wrongdoer was secured in the stocks he would be ridiculed by the local villagers. The chapel stands near the beautiful Forge Dam Park and many walks may be enjoyed in the surrounding area.
