Location of Hope's Rough PM Chapel

On South side of a no through lane, Much Cowarne Civil Parish, Herefordshire

By Richard Beck

Location GR – SO 63881 47931 

In 2014 the building is possibly a private store. It is showing signs of stress with walls beginning to bulge at roof level. The wall plaque is un-readable, so no date for opening has yet been found. From the 1904 OS map it was already closed.
