Full Description

There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 2nd edition 25" OS map of c. 1900 that is not present on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880. It appears to have superseded a chapel on Needham Street, which was in use as a Sunday school by 1900 (see SMR 18210). (1-2) The Primitive Methodists erected their first place of worship in 1857 [see SMR 18210]. In 1880 a handsome new chapel was built at a cost of £1,300, to accommodate 750. It is an imposing structure of brick, is well-lighted, and is elegantly furnished with open pews of pitchpine. A gallery is carried around the entire building. (3) The former chapel has since been demolished, but the site remains undeveloped [2011]. (4-5)
