Full Description

There is a Primitive Methodist chapel situated here on the 2nd edition OS map that was not here on the 1st edition. It appears to have superseded an earlier chapel to the north (see SMR 18434). (1-2) The Primitive Methodist Chapel, situated in the higher part of Crich Carr, is a handsome edifice of cut stone, erected in 1877, at an estimated cost of £1,000.00. The site was given by the late Mr. John Sims, and also a portion of the stone. (3) The building has now been converted for residential use [2011]. (4-5)
