Congregation Leaving Wesleyan Chapel in Mansfield (c.1901)
A view of Mansfield's Bridge Street, as worshippers emerge from chapel.
Non-Fiction 1901 2 mins
Thanks to the camera's position on the other side of Bridge Street, this is more of a general street view than a study of a congregation emerging. The chapel entrance isn't shown, making it hard to distinguish between worshippers and passers-by, although the first group would presumably be better dressed. Two boys seem determined to linger in shot throughout, but eventually join their friends.
Mansfield's Wesleyan Chapel was built in 1864, its predecessor having been judged too small to cope with the various local Wesleyan religious revivals. The building, now known as the Bridge Street Methodist Church, remains in use to this day.
