Full Description

There is a 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. (1-2) The Primitive Methodists erected their first chapel at Heanor in 1819 [the location of this chapel is uncertain, although it may be the chapel labelled on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880 at SK 304 465]. This building was sold, and the present commodious chapel was built in 1886 at a cost of £1,100. (3) The Heanor and District Local History Society list Heanor Primitive Methodist Chapel as having been situated on Park Street. (4) The building has since been demolished [2011]. (5)
