Full Description

The General Baptists had a chapel at Alfreton, but which for the last six years has been occupied by the Primitive Methodists [1857]. It is situated on Nesbit Road [uncertain location]. (1) There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 1st edition OS map. (2) Primitive Methodism was established in Alfreton in the early part of the 19th century. There are now [1895] two chapels in the town: the Ebenezer, in Nottingham Road [see SMR 16226]; and the other, in Derby Road, was erected at an outlay of £876. (3) By the 4th edition OS map, this chapel appears to have been superseded by a larger church to the north (now known as Watchorn Memorial Methodist Church). (4) The chapel has been demolished and the site has been redeveloped [2011]. (5-6)
