Full Description

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, cost £988, and in 1893 an organ was added, at an expense of £150. The other is situated in Derby Road [see SMR 16225]. (1) There is a chapel situated here on the 2nd edition OS map that was not present on the 1st edition. It is labelled as a Primitive Methodist Chapel by the 3rd edition. (2-4) The building is no longer in use as a place of worship and appears to be in commercial use [2011]. (5)
