Poulton-Le-Fylde Congregational Church

The title of this blogpage is not the title of the church. My instincts tell me that the church is nothing like as old as the memorial. However their are interesting plaques about the place that may well prove me wrong.  There are pictures below. This well loved memorial is on the wall at the west end of the church. Like most "modern" churches the pews have gone and are replaced by movable chairs. Really small congregational area. It was set up for a coffee morning and Curly Poodle Cards were there doing their thing.


The Pictures:


Facing the Teanlow Centre. This entrance is the south entrance
The inscription is below

Has this plaque come from here?

United Reform Church
A 'small commodious' Independent chapel was opened in 1809.
In 1886 the chapel was reroofed and reseated.
The new redbrick building was completed in 1899 on land given by
Mr Robert Bainbridge whose home, Chatburn House stood close by.
Further alterations took place in 2007.
There seems to be more research needed on the places and people mentioned on the plaques. I also believe this plaque is not on the list of of the UK National Inventory of War Memorials
