NOTES: Selina, Countess of Huntingdon was the Founder of the Calvinistic / Methodist group known as the Countess of Huntingdon Connexion for which this chapel was built in 1804 (replacing a smaller chapel of 1771-1773), and enlarged in 1815. The chapel closed as a place of worship in 1976 and quickly fell into disrepair. It was rescued and converted into a concert venue by the Buttress Fuller Partnership in 1980-1987.
