Full Description

There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated here on the 2nd and 3rd edition 25" OS maps of the late 19th-early 20th century that is not present on the 1st edition 25" OS map of c. 1880. It appears to supersede an earlier chapel to the north (see SMR 26930). (1-3) The Primitive Methodists erected their present chapel in 1882. It is built of brick with stone dressings, and is excellently fitted up with galleries, affording accommodation for a total of 600 persons. (4) The chapel has since been demolished and the site has been redeveloped [2011]. (5-6)
