Darby Hand Providence Chapel

Built in 1837 at a cost of £950 which included 2 dwelling houses.  After a fire in 1971 destroyed the Sunday School, the chapel finally closed it's doors in August 1974.  Happily, on the 15th of September 1979 it was re-opened and re-dedicated on it's present site in the Museum.  At the request of the Museum, the friends formed a 'stewards' team to maintain the original dedication.  Over the years we've held 5 main services each year, these being Easter, Summer Festival, P.S.A, Harvest and our 'Christmas Carol's by Candlelight'.

if you would like to be present at any of these chapel services, please see the 'Events' section for details.
Our chapel, due to it's size, has limited seating.  It is advisable to obtain tickets in advance. Contact Alan Hallman on 01384 279900 for more information.
