By Christopher Hill

Goulceby Primitive Methodist chapel was built in 1834 and was enlarged in 1837. In the Primitive Methodist magazine for 1834, Henry Sharman dates the opening services as 06/07/1833 & 07/07/1833 when the preachers were J Butcher and W Paddison.  The opening was embellished by Mrs Wright giving the chapel a beautiful bible and hymnbook.

The chapel closed in 1886 and was converted into a house.

Although Keith Guyler gives a grid reference with his picture which points to Top Lane just east of its junction with Butt Lane, I am unable to find the exact location of the Primitive Methodist chapel on Google Street View. Can anyone help?

There were Wesleyan and Free Methodist chapels in Butt Lane.
