Cargo WM Chapel, Cumberland

Grid ref NY 364592

By GW Oxley

In 1851 a school room erected around 1804 was being used. Apparently there was no seating but standing room for about 60.
The chapel was built of brick in 1857 at a cost of £105. In 1873 it had 160 sittings. In 1940 the chapel  had 60 sittings on forms and there was a schoolroom.
The chapel was closed on 8 November 1968 through failure of the cause and the cost of repairs being too great. It is doubtful whether ay of the structure remains standing.
