The first Primitive Methodist Chapel in Barwell was built in 1829/33 and redeveloped in 1852/53.  It later became part of a factory.

In 1895 a plot of land on what is now Shilton Road was purchased and in 1897 a schoolroom was built where the congregation worshipped for a number of years until in 1903 a new church was built on this site. This building continued in use until 1966. It is now Chapel Flats.
