COLEBROOK UNITED FREE METHODIST CHAPEL

The Free Methodists originally met in a cottage in the village but this soon became too small for the growing congregation.

On Wednesday May 9th 1866 the memorial stone was laid by Mrs Crossing of a new chapel capable of holding 200 worshippers.  The Reverend William Embleton, the Pastor of the Circuit, led the service, during which a bottle containing a copy of the Plymouth Circuit Plan, a Quarterly Token of Church Membership, the "Wesleyan Times", and a document listing the Church officers, architect and builder, was placed beneath the stone.  After the ceremony the company adjourned to the Colebrook Inn for tea.
