North Common Wesleyan/Methodist Church

Originally two houses and a barn stood on this site. However in due to the expanding congregations at the first chapel just along the lane(see photo below), the site was bought in1876. The building cost £947 and was extended further in 1882 at the and a vestry. It was a thriving church and shared a minister with Hatfield Road in St Albans. It continues to be a very important part of the community today.
