Full Description

The Primitive Methodist Chapel at Grosvenor Place was erected in 1850. It is about to be enlarged with schools added at an outlay of £200. (1) There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 1st edition OS map. It is no longer present by the 2nd edition OS map, by which time Grosvenor Place becomes Grosvenor Road. (2-3) A following of Primitive Methodists had built up in Ripley by the late 1840s. The group met in a room in Malt House. In 1850 the Ripley Primitive Methodist Church became head of a new circuit. This church was in Grosvenor Road, on the site that was formerly the CO-OP Fish and Meat shop and is now a wine Bar [2011]. In the 1870s there was a big religious revival under the leadership of the Rev. John Thomas Neale. By this time the church in Grosvenor Road was too small to hold all the people who attended, so in 1876 a group of miners bought new premises in Wood Street [see SMR 24789]. The remaining congregations from Grosvenor Road built a new church on Nottingham Road in 1893 [see SMR 24792]. (4)
