Tewitfield Methodist Chapel
Tewitfield Methodist Chapel
On the corner of Kirkgate Lane and Kellet Lane. Viewpoint is on Tewitfield Old Turnpike Bridge, number 138 on the Lancaster Canal.

Tewitfield Methodist Chapel opened as a recognised place of worship sometime around 1886 although it could have been used as a Wesleyan meeting house some time before that. The chapel is thought to have originally been an alehouse used by the canal navvies who built the Lancaster Canal in the 1790s. The canal was opened in 1797 bringing much work to the area at about the same time as Methodism grew in popularity. It must be assumed that as the navvies departed the Methodists took the building over. It is within easy walking distance of Priest Hutton via Kirkgate Lane, and Borwick via the canal towpath. Tewitfield is a hamlet near Carnforth and consists mainly of farms, the Twitfield Marina, a caravan park and the Longlands Inn. Tewit is a dialect name for the lapwing.
