Full Description

The Primitive Methodist Chapel at Ashbourne dates to 1846, and will seat 120 (see SMR 359). It has long been inadequate to meet the requirements of the increasing congregation and classes, and a new chapel is now in course of erection on the Paddock, in Station Street, at a cost of £1465. The Rev. John Redhead is the minister. (1) There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 2nd edition OS map. (2) The Primitive Methodist Chapel, in Station Street, erected in 1894, at a cosy £1700, is an edifice of red brick, with Stanton stone dressings, and has 400 sittings. (3) The building appears to have since been demolished and replaced with a terrace named 'Chapel Terrace' [2011]. (4)
