Full Description

There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 1st edition OS map. (1) It is no longer labelled as a place of worship in the 3rd edition OS map, and it appears to have been replaced by a chapel on Starkholmes Road (see SMR 30803). (2) The Primitive Methodist Chapel at Starkholmes that was built in 1905 appears to have replaced an earlier chapel at Ward's End. (3) The chapel appears to have been replaced with 'The Gables' [2011]; however some of the chapel may have been incorporated in to it. (4)
