Hesketh Lane Methodist Chapel
Sunday School

"Men's Fireside"

The Men's Fireside was a weekly meeting with a speaker for the men of the chapel and their friends. It was originally held in the old Sunday School which was heated by a large boiler in the centre of the hall. As everyone tended to sit around the fire for the meetings, it became known as the "Men's Fireside"
