the old chapel
The impressive interior of this former Wesleyan Chapel was the inspiration for this JD Wetherspoon pub. Architect CT gained Listed Building consent to open up the vast double height space, and a dramatic 11m high ceiling is now exposed for customers to see. Many of the themes of the church are referenced within the interior, such as traditional panelling and Corinthian detailing. Stained glass windows have been retained, with their shapes and colours reflected in the carpet and fabrics. Feature lighting adds the finishing touch to the extensive space.
