Rose Hill Chapel, Bolton: The Dumplingites

Rose Hill, Oldham, was the meeting-place of a vegetarian society, who were nicknamed the Dumplingites.  They were regarded as Socialists.  The building was then used by Wesleyans, and in 1841 was acquired by the Mawdsley Street congregation for a Sunday school; in 1864 a school chapel was erected, and in 1870 a separate church was constituted; Nightingale, op. cit. 41.
