Newport Isle of Wight Primitive Methodist Chapel

By Mike Plumbley on 06/08/2017 at 11:21

Hello researching my family history and discovered my grandmother Ellen Willis nee Leigh was baptised at the Primitive Methodist chapel in Newport Isle of Wight. I see from reading Christopher Hill's notes on the chapel that he was asking where it was.

Following a hunch I think I found the answer:

http://www.apollo-theatre.org.uk/the-theatre/

Somewhere read that the Apollo Theatre was built after the purchase of the Apollo Theatre of a Primitive Methodist Chapel. This made sense as the original building was bought from Weslyian Methodists who moved to larger premises. I assume that the County Press would have pictures of the original Primitive Methodists chapel which interests me for my family history.

Any help appreciated

Mike
