The Methodist Chapel in Bradmore - A Radio Voice Recording
The Methodist Chapel at Bradmore was built in 1830 and a celebration was held in 1980 to mark its one hundred and fifty years. This voice recording was made by Mr Neville Waddingham at the time for the local media. Neville and his wife Gladys were long standing members of the chapel and were very active in the village. As a master builder, he designed and built his own bungalow 'The Wynyards', now 35 Main Street. The recording outlines some of the history of Methodism in Bradmore and the village events to mark its 150 years. A programme and some photographs are shown elsewhere on this site.
