The Gadfield Elm Chapel in Worcestershire, England, was built by the United Brethren religious group in 1836 and given to the Latter-day Saints when most of the group joined the Church. The small stone chapel could seat about 100 people. Once when President Brigham Young was at the pulpit, there was not even standing room for the attending crowd.
