Charles Street Cheadle ST10 1ED

By Christopher Hill

The Primitive Methodist Museum at Englesea Brook has several photographs and postcards labelled "Charles Street Cheadle Primitive Methodist chapel". Google Street View shows the double fronted chapel at 24 Charles Street as disused in both 2009 and October 2015.  

One photograph is of an earlier building, labelled PRIMITIVE METHODIST CHAPEL A.D.1848.  Was this on the same site? One alternative location is on the other side of Charles Street: there is the current Methodist Church Hall which on Ordnance Survey maps from 1880 is labelled Sunday School (although that label is not directly on the building and could relate to other chapels in Chapel Street). 

There is a further complication  There is also a picture labelled Cheadle Primitive Methodist chapel you can see here but it doesn't look like either of the two buildings in Charles Street!  Can anyone unscramble this please?
