The Abandoned New Row Methodist Graveyard | Blackburn


Built in 1828, the site upon which the chapel still stands was the gift of Mr. G. W. Turner, who was a prosperous calico printer with a business in Stakes Hall, Mill Hill. He was also Member of Parliament for the Borough of Blackburn, and an inscription over the door of the chapel shows his initials, G. W. T. 1828.

The Grade II listed chapel was extended and upgraded several times in the 19th Century.

We managed to find out that after closing in 2011 (some records show that it closed in 2011 but we found a headstone dated 2017?) , the chapel and its surroundings were put up for sale before finally being purchased towards the back end of 2022 by a private buyer for over £100,000. Local residents were worried about the future of the graves and those buried within the graveyard.
