PATTERSON’s PLAINS CHAPEL.-This building, erected by the Wesleyans will be opened for divine service, on Sunday next, the 6th December, when the Rev. Mr. Eggleston will preach in the morning at eleven, and in the evening at six o’clock. This place of worship is situated about three miles from town, on the east bank of the North Esk, near Clarke’s Ford: though small, the chapel is a particularly neat specimen of the Italian style, and was designed by Mr. William Archer, junior, of Woolmers, who kindly presented the plan.
The Examiner, 2 December 1846

Headstones are around the church building.

In 2006, when these photos were taken, the adjoining primary school used the building. They added this door at the back.

  1. Hi Monissa
    My maiden name is also Whiteley. I grew up in Burnie, Tasmania . I am looking for a convict relative- Elizabeth Jane hunt/ whales. She married John Hunt in 1848 and died in 1849. She was buried at st Leonard’s Methodist church. Do you have any information .
    Cheers christine hollister
