Grittleton Chapel

12829248_1128948347139526_8655973145449762374_oGrittleton Baptist Chapel in North Wiltshire is a very early example of a nonconformist chapel. It is in the ownership of the Historic Chapels Trust.

It is the concern of some that the Chapel still be used for worship and the preaching of the Word of God in accordance with the history of the church that once met there, and it is our hope that a church might be re-established in due time. A service is held at the Chapel on the third Sunday of each month at 2:30pm.
