Galantry Elms Primitive Methodist chapel

Kidderminster circuit - but where?

By Christopher Hill

In the 1855 Primitive Methodist magazine Joseph Hutchings gives an account of the laying of the foundation stone of a new chapel in the Kidderminster circuit at a place called Galantry Elms (sic).

"The foundation-stone of another connexional chapel in this circuit, was laid at the Galantry Elms, on Monday, October 15th, 1855, by Mr. John Pullen, of Worcester. Addresses were delivered by the writer, Rev. R. Jones, and Mr. John Pullen. The congregations were large, and the collections liberal. The land was given by Mr. Thomas Arnold, and the chapel will be built free of cost by Mr. Simmonds, builder ; so that we have only to find materials.

We are happy to say that the work of God in this place has been gradually progressing. We have nearly doubled our society for the last year. To the Great Head of the Church be all the glory."

But where on earth was this chapel?
