Morwellen Chapel


An untouched example of a Methodist chapel in a mining area. The building was left untended and was rescued by the DHBT and West Devon Borough Council.

Morwellham Chapel


It is now owned by the DHBT and leased to the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

The Role of DHBT – Buy, Lease and Retain

The DHBT is able to lease a property, renovate it and retain it for the future. Any profits from business use or rent are used to maintain the property.
