Chapel teapot



The Ladies Committee of the Anfield Road Calvanistic Methodist Chapel used this stoneware teapot during the late 1800s. It holds about 50 cups of tea - handy for a building which could hold 850 people! The chapel closed its doors in 1979 and was sadly burned down during the 1980s. This teapot was rescued from the rubble. In the 19th and early 20th centuries Liverpool was home to a large Welsh community whose influence and legacy remain in the city today. The community, which originally numbered around 70,000 by the end of the 1800s, built over 90 places of worship. Many of Liverpool’s street names also reflect the Welsh people that built them with names such as Rhiwlas Street and Madryn Street, birthplace of The Beatle’s drummer Ringo Starr.
