Welcome to the Walpole Old Chapel timeline. This is being developed to provide
access to some of the chapel's records that would otherwise not be readily
available to members of the public.
The records have been arranged along a timeline. Most of the 'flags' you will see
on the timeline are events which happened at particular dates, or time periods. We
have organised the records into three categories of event:
(a) White text on green flags: things which happened to or in the chapel during its
history - changes in ownership, building alterations etc
(b) Black text on light blue flags: national events, particularly in the development of
non-conformism, which provide a context for what's happening in/to the chapel in
(c) White text on purple flags: the people in the chapel story - ministers, trustees,
Most of the event flags on the timeline have links to associated records. These can
be of several types:
(a) Notes - text that expands in a few sentences on the flag's title
(b) Photographs (of original records, for example, or people in the Chapel story).
(c) Links to other online content.
