Methodist Chapel, Donhead
Society of Donhead Ringers [Back to Donhead Digest]
The last service was held on 7 October 2007, and the Chapel is now closed. We hope to continue to hold our Plant and Produce Sale in May, location to be announced. The Harvest Supper in October was another enjoyable occasion, and we intend to keep this annual event going.
The Chapel was built in the nineteenth century and has been an important part of life for the village since then. In the 1960s and 1970s, funds were raised for its upkeep by, amongst other things, a caravan on a lay-by on the A30 between Ludwell and Ansty, selling teas and snacks. Many travellers who took the road in those days may well remember it, as it was a popular stop, in the days when the A30 was still the major route to the West Country from London and before the quick trips down the motorways.
