Full Description

According to Kelly's Directory, there is a Primitive Methodist chapel at Apperknowle, erected in 1879, for 250 persons. (1) There is a Primitive Methodist Chapel situated in Apperknowle on the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880, presumably that referred to by Kelly in 1912. (2) Apperknowle Methodist Church was opened in 1879, replacing an earlier building. It is the only place of worship in the village, and is, therefore, the centre of the village Christian activity. Sunday services are led by Ministers and Local Preachers from the Brunswick Circuit, Sheffield and by visitors from other churches, often involving members of the congregation. (3) Modern maps show this building is still extant and in use as a Church. (4)
