Pastor Bertram Powner

In Market Lavington, at the far end of the High Street, at the junction with Stobberts Road, is the former Congregational Chapel, later Trinity Church, and now a private house. (The congregation still worship together, but in the Community Hall.)

In our 1980 photograph, we see the church and, behind it, a prefabricated hut.

This was known as The Powner Hall and was named after the pastor, Bertram Powner. We have met him before at A dinner treat for the Congregational men, but we do also have a photograph of him at the museum.

He was at the church for Dedicating the Powner Hall in 1968, but the building no longer exists. The church was sold off by auction in 2010.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
