The History of the Chapel Building

The present building was opened for use on Tuesday 18th March 1845. The building was designed to seat up to 300 people and 150 of those places (in those days called "sittings") were free! The opening is reported in the Hereford Journal edition of Wednesday 26th March 1845. The report itself is sandwiched between a list of persons charged with various offences (to be tried at the next assizes?) and details of inquests held earlier in the month!
