Bulkeley Methodist Church is in Wrexham Road in the village of Bulkeley, Cheshire, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated GradeĀ II listed building.

History

The church is dated 1861. It was originally called the Jubilee Primitive Methodist Chapel.

Architecture

The building is constructed in red brick on a stone plinth with a slate roof. Despite its date, the architectural style is Georgian. It has a rectangular plan in two bays orientated north-south. The entrance is on the south side and contains a doorcase above which is a fanlight. This is flanked by round-headed sash windows. Above these is a pediment containing a panel with the original name of the church and its date. There are similar sash windows along the sides of the church. Inside the church is a reredos containing a three-arched arcade. The pulpit is hexagonal. The listing describes it as "an intact and pleasing example of a small chapel of the date". This is being purchased and converted into a domestic dwelling.
