Description

The Uniting Church in Hadspen, Tasmania, was built as a Wesleyan chapel in 1874, and became a Methodist church in 1924. The chapel was probably designed by Mr Monds, described as the ‘clerk of the works’ in a newspaper article in The Cornwall Chronicle (Launceston) about the opening of the chapel. The small white weatherboard church demonstrates that even when cheap and easily materials were being used, there was an attempt by colonial communities to build a church similar to those found in Europe. The chapel is in the Gothic Revival style and features a pointed arch entrance, lancet windows, and a small porch.
