A CHAPEL situated in an idyllic setting is to stage a catering day on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25.

Danebridge Methodist Church, pictured, will be open to visitors between 10am and 5pm.

The chapel is in the beautiful Dane Valley, right by the River Dane between Swythamley and Wincle, in a picture postcard setting.

During the day there will be a tempting selection of home-made cakes and light lunches, tea, coffee and ice cream on sale, with live background music while you eat. Cakes can also be purchased to take home.

Visitors will also be able to combine the event by taking a stroll along the river with a break for lunch at the chapel.

There is indoor and outdoor seating available, with plenty of space whatever the weather, and well behaved dogs are welcome in the gazebo.

The chapel was built in 1834, although Methodists met for worship in local farmhouses and the mill before the present building was erected.

On Census Sunday 1851 the attendance was 80 in the afternoon, besides Sunday school children, and 120 in the evening.

Today there is still a service held most Sundays although the usual congregation now numbers just six.

The chapel is also home to Danebridge choir with around 25 people meeting weekly under the direction of choirmaster Roger Preston.

The choir is well known in the local area and performs at special occasions both at Danebridge and surrounding chapels.
