A Primitive Methodist Chapel

By Gabrielle Rose

I have just bought and moved into Amy Hall, Linton, Cambridge. CB21 4HS The building started life in 1875 as a Methodist Chapel it then  went on to be a Salvation Army Hall until 1986.  It has been converted to a private house now.  I am delighted with it and interested to know its history.  For example the orignal name was  Kingdom Hall.  It is now called Amy Hall.  I am wondering how that name came into being.  Was it a spelling error from Army ( as in Salvation) to Amy?

Gabrielle,

You may be able to find information about the Methodist period of your house in the county archives. You could look for minutes of Trustees meeting, minutes of Circuit Quarterley Meetings, and circuit preaching plans would tell you who preached in the chapel and when.

Hi,  I converted the Hall in 86/87. I changed the name to Amy Hall after my daughter Amy.
