A small village close to the Welsh border just north of Wigmore.
Adforton was without church or chapel until around 1863, when the Primitive Methodists erected a neat little chapel which was described as “an ornament to the village and a blessing to many”.
A large schoolroom was also built at the same time, which could accommodate 200 children, but when it opened there were only 9 scholars. Things improved however, and soon there were 65 pupils which was quite remarkable given the very thinly populated area.
