Full Description

The 1st ed. 25" OS map c. 1880 shows a Chapel on East Bank, Winster. (1) The chapel was still in use at the beginning of the 20th century. (2, 3) Examination of modern maps indicate that the chapel is still a place of worship for Methodists. (4) Built in 1823 (and enlarged in 1850) this is the fifth oldest Primitive Methodist chapel in the whole country. It has pews arranged in tiers. (5) The Primitive Methodist Chapel in Winster was built in 1923 but was greatly enlarged in 1850. Some early masonry remains on the north side with evidence of successive enlargements. (6)
