Wesleyan Chapel and Sunday School / Romsey Mill

History of the Wesleyan Chapel

The Conference ‘Committee on methodism in Cambridge’ in its first report made reference to ‘arrangements which are being made to organize Mission Work in a thickly populated artisan Suburb of Cambridge called Romsey Town.’ This work was undertaken by undergraduates and senior boys of The Leys School. A plot of land was acquired at the corner of Hemingford and Mill Roads in 1890, and here a ‘Mission Chapel’ was erected. In 1906 the present chapel was built. (See The History of methodism in Cambridge by Frank Tice.
