Full Description

A Primitive Methodist Chapel appears at this site on the 1st edition 25" OS map. (1) This chapel, with a school below, was built in 1845 at the top of Woolley Bridge Road, with a seating capacity of 360 people. The chapel was closed in 1959 and the congregation moved to Bank Street Chapel (see SMR 6175). In 1961, the building was demolished. Building experts at the time said that is was as 'solid as a rock, made of good stone..and would have stood for centuries'. A new bungalow now stands on the site [2010]. (2)
