The Chapel was located on Quarry Road, later re-named Commercial Road, in Bulwell which is a northern suburb of Nottingham. Although there had been earlier buildings in use, the building concern opened in 1888 and closed in September 1968 when the three Methodist congregations in Bulwell merged to worship at the Wesleyan, which, being the smallest building, was cheapest to run.
