Full Description

'The Primitive Methodists have a chapel in the village [Scarcliffe], built in 1858'. (1) The 1st ed. 25" OS map c. 1880 shows a Primitive Methodist Chapel in Scarcliffe close to St Leonard's Church. (2) The chapel appears on the subsequent 2nd and 3rd edition OS maps c. 1900 - 30. (3, 4) Examination of modern maps shows that the building is probably still standing today, although its current use is not clear [2009]. (5) Looking at Google Maps Street View, this building has had many of its openings blocked up and double doors inserted in to its front elevation. It may be in use for storage [2011]. (6)
