Martin Top or Salem?














Our name causes some confusion. Are we Martin Top Chapel or Salem Chapel?

We were originally called The Dissenting Church and Congregation called Independents Assembling in Salem Chapel at Newby Hills.

This is not the catchiest of names, so we often referred to ourselves as Salem Chapel. The chapel is located on Newby Hill, but the little hamlet in which it stands is called Martin Top. So we are officially Salem Congregational Chapel at Martin Top. To many people though, we are simply ‘Martin Top Chapel’. So call us what you will.
