Ebenezer Chapel, Rooks Street, Cottenham

History of the Ebenezer Chapel

The chapel was built on 40 square feet square purchased from William Kimpton. The foundation was laid in 1812.

Gas lamps were introduced in the 1860s and until WWII it was a well supported chapel. It closed in 1979 though with only five members.
