Full Description

There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 2nd edition 25" OS map of c. 1900. It is not present on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880, but there is a mission room slightly to the east that has fallen out of use by the 2nd edition OS map. (1-2) The Primitive Methodists have a chapel on Nottingham Road that was erected in 1884. (3) The Nottingham Road Methodist Church began in 1875 with the purchase of four cottages on the site of the present church, one of which was used for public worship. In 1884, the first purpose-built church was built in the gardens of the cottages. In 1897 work began to increase the capacity of the church, which involved the demolition of the two cottages that fronted on to Nottingham Road. In 1959 a new church was added to the old school rooms. (4) The building has since been extended to the east, but is still in use as a place of worship [2011]. The former mission room has been demolished to accommodated the extension to the east. (5-6)
