Baptist Chapels near Redbourn
« on: Saturday 16 June 18 16:58 BST (UK) »
A letter says that  "my father was  a strict Baptist i.e. of the exclusion order - what exactly it implied I do not know - but he had to go a good distance to his chapel & not to the nearby Baptist at Redbourn." ( He lived in Redbourn)
Does anyone have suggestions where this chapel might have been? What was a reasonable distance to walk?  Thanks, Toby.

A little more information is now to hand which may help readers.
Prior to Redbourn, he lived at Stags End which is about 3 miles away. In that area the six inch O.S. maps show 3 Baptist Chapels. One is in Crown Street, Redbourn and is described as 'General'. Another on Redbourn Common is described as 'Particular'. A third is at Gaddesden Row and is described as 'High Calvanistic'. T.

Strict Baptists were a group of Baptist Churches generally Calvinist in theology, so he probably went to the one in Gaddesden Row.
