Former Congregational Chapel, Tunbridge Wells, Kent - 23rd January 2005

This building is located in Albion Road.  Its origins as a chapel are clear, however it is now converted to residential use.  Further information as to its history would be welcomed.

Former Chapel, Albion Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent - 23rd January 2005 - MTC

The conversion of the porch is rather unsympathetic.

There is a picture of this building when still a chapel in my Postcard Album.

The following description comes from the 15th edition of Pelton's Guide to Tunbridge Wells (1896):

"Albion Road Congregational Church was erected in 1873, by the liberality of two gentlemen resident in Tunbridge Wells, and is situated in the new district of the town, beyond the Camden Road.  It is a neat Gothic structure, and accommodates 400 on the ground floor.  It has been much improved by the edition of a gallery and other conveniences.  Sunday services: morning, 11; evening, 6.30.  Week-day service: Wednesday evening, 7.30. Rev. R. Ridler is the minister. The Congregational Hymn Book is used.
The handsome schools adjoining were erected in 1876, at the sole cost of the late J. Remington Mills, Esq."
