Chapel was picture subject


Re your Memory Lane picture called Church event:

I can confirm that the picture was taken in The Unitarian Chapel in Field Row, Belper.

It appears to show mayoral dignitaries and also shows the then Minister (and still active member) Derek Smith, and a member of the congregation, Arthur Chamberlain.

It has been suggested that it was taken in the 1980s.

Coincidentally, I began to get involved with The Unitarian Chapel just under a year ago, and Arthur Chamberlain, in the picture, used to live in the house that I now live in Mill Street.

I am sure others can add precise date and names of the others in the photo.
