Dean Row Chapel is a Unitarian place of worship near Manchester, England. It is located 2 miles (3 km) east of the town of Wilmslow, Cheshire, near the junction of the A5102 and B5358 roads. The structure has been designated by English Heritage as a Grade II* listed building. The congregation is a member of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches, the umbrella organisation for British Unitarians.
The chapel was built around the end of the 17th century soon after the passing of the Act of Toleration 1689. By 1843 it had become a ruin. It was restored but during the process many of the internal fittings and furniture were lost. The chapel was rededicated on 23 April 1845. A further restoration took place in 1971. Initially Presbyterian, it later became Unitarian and is still in use as a Unitarian chapel.
The chapel is built in red brick with sandstone dressings and is in two storeys. The roof is of Kerridge slates with a stone ridge. The eastern gable is surmounted by a stone ball and the western gable has a bellcote with a single bell, and a stone ball on its top. Two external staircases lead to the upper storeys and under each staircase is a porch providing an entrance to the lower storey. At the lower level are four two-light chamfered stone mullioned windows, and at the upper level six similar windows. In the centre of the wall are bronze war memorial plaques.
At each end are galleries with the organ occupying the east gallery. The altar table is at the east end and is enclosed by a curved rail. Also at the east end is the three-level pulpit which was formerly on the north side. At the west end is a board containing the names of the past ministers.
