"The transformation of the Bethesda Chapel churchyard is now complete, with new lighting, pathways and landscaping installed to create a pedestrian walkway linking the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery to the Victoria Hall.
A commissioned stone sculpture, Mother and Child, forms the centrepiece to one of the new seating areas and was created by local figurative sculptor Anthony Beetlestone with the help of youngsters at St Luke’s Primary School and the Friends of Bethesda Chapel."
