Plymouth Brethren Gospel Hall
Aller Bridge Gospel Hall
Aller Bridge is no more than a few dwellings and a bridge over a stream, lying about a mile south-east of the village of Coldridge. This tiny place lies between Morchard Road Station and Taw Gate, on the B3220 towards Winkleigh.
A map from Streetmap.co.uk shows Allerbridge in relation to Coleridge - note Allerbridge is shown as Aller Br.
Mentioned in White's (1850) "History,
Gazetteer and Directory of Devonshire", about a mile from
the main village of Coldridge, lies the Plymouth Brethren
Chapel of Aller Bridge Gospel Hall which no doubt served the outlying
communities of Coldridge. It was often common for people to use a nearby
chapel of non-conformist denomination, rather than walk to the nearest Church
of England, if such a chapel was nearer. So if you can't find a baptism,
marriage or burial where you might expect then try one of the local
Ruth Bartlett's DAVEY Family
To the right, is the grave of Richard and Caroline's son, Ernest
DAVEY (1899 - ?) and his wife Lena (nee SAMPSON).
Both were Ruth's Uncle and Aunt.
