Full Description

According to Bulmer's Directory, the Primitive Methodists erected a chapel at Stone Gravels in 1890, at a cost of £780, as a memorial of the Rev. George Booth, who for 21 years preached the Gospel in this and other circuits of the Chesterfield Primitive Methodist Connexion. (1) There is a Methodist Chapel (Primitive) situated in Stonegravels on the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1880. (2) The 2nd edition 25" Ordnance Survey map of c. 1900 shows a larger Methodist Chapel (Primitive) to the 1st edition 25" Ordnance Survey map on this site, presumably the chapel referred to by Bulmer in 1895 replaced an earlier building. (3) Modern maps show the building has been demolished and replaced by a Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses. (4)
