  • None recorded

Full Description

The Primitive Methodist’s Chapel, Union street, is a neat brick building, erected in 1846, and will seat about 200 persons. (1) There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 1st edition OS map. It is just off Union Street, but is presumed to be the chapel mentioned by Authority 1. (2) The Primitive Methodist Chapel dates back from 1846, and will seat 120. 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 (see SMR 358). (3) The building appears to have been demolished and replaced with housing by the 2nd edition OS map. (4)
