Dating from the 12th century, Malinslee Chapel has been a ruin since at least the 1700s.

 

It once used to stand in the grounds of Malinslee Hall, on the site of the present day Telford Town Centre.

 

When the Hall was demolished in 1971 to make way for the new Telford Town Centre, the Chapel was dismantled by the Telford Development Corporation and later re-assembled in the Town Park by the Withy Pool.

 

It is believed that the Chapel was used as a place of rest for travellers moving through the ancient forests that once surrounded the area.

Disappointed to find the chapel being used as a storage space for new benches for the Town Park, and even more disappointed to find a row of cars parked along one side of the chapel; it's not as if there isn't ample parking in Telford town centre!
