Bishop Norton Primitive Methodist chapel dates initially from 1833. This was replaced by the building in Keith Guyler's photograph in 1875.

The chapel served until 1993 and at the time of the photograph in 1996 was for sale. On Google Street View in 2009 notable building work is taking place.

With thanks to Steve Wild we have been able to add a picture of the 1833 chapel in Bishop Norton. Does anyone know what has happened to this building?

On Main Street there is a building with the plaque Methodist Free Church 1865. Was this the earlier 1833 PM Chapel and if so was the plaque changed?. It looks very much like Steven's photograph, although that photograph does not have the word Primitive written on the bottom of it and says Church not Chapel.

Main Street continues where there is a bend/junction. It is further down on the continuation of Main Street where the Methodist Free Church with name and date 1865 plaque can be read. The Google Sat Map will take you there.
