Charlesworth Congregational Church



Charlesworth Congregational church- otherwise known as "Top Chapel"- was built in 1797. There's been an independent congregation worshipping here since 1611- hence the claim that it's the "longest continually worshipping free church in England." One of it's early members sailed on the Mayflower. See here for more information.

In 2006 the minister of Top Chapel was found guilty of forging the wills of two elderly members of the church. He was given 240 hours community service.
