Aston Abbotts Primitive Methodist Church

By Jill Barber

The Primitive Methodist magazine for December 1842 contains an account by Samuel Turner of the opening of a Primitive Methodist chapel in Aston Abbots.

"This chapel had been occupied by Independents for several years.  But on the 3rd of November, 1839, it was opened for the use of our society and congregation in that place, by Mr. Thomas Quarterman; and a very gracious influence attended the word.  Since its opening the congregation has been good, and the society more than doubled." (transcribed by David Tonks)

The first chapel was built in 1842.
