Ellesmere Mount Zion Primitive Methodist chapel in the Oswestry circuit was opened on July 12th 1840.  It measured 13 yds x 7yds x 16' high and cost £253 7s 3d.

The chapel was replaced  in 1908 by a new chapel - unusually with a tower - in Trimley Street.  Streetview shows what appears to be the Mount Zion building in September 2016 as Scott's Victoria Garage.

R Ward writes about the opening of Mount Zion in the Primitive Methodist magazine in the attached document.
