Formerly Queen's Walk Congregational Chapel

The Pilgrim Church on Queen's Walk, The Meadows was formerly a Congregational Chapel.


On 1st December 1869 a small Congregational mission church was established in an old warehouse in the Meadows. It was an outpost of the main Congregational church in Castle Gate Nottingham – one of the oldest Congregational churches in the Midlands.


The mission church was soon thriving and was financially viable, however it suffered from poor accommodation – one report says that the flooring of the warehouse was so rotten that a visiting minister was unfortunate enough to fall through the floor!

During the 1870s the CastlegateChurch sent a young enthusiastic minister, Mr William Lee, to the mission. He stayed at the church for many years and saw it re-housed in a brand new building – what is today the PilgrimChurch.
