When the Primitive Methodist Conference was held in Grimsby in 1899, Hainton Street chapel - " a most imposing place, in one of the finest neighbourhoods" - was the Conference base.

The chapel was built in 1870, but the whole scheme was not completed until three years after in 1873.second Circuit. It seated around 900 people and closed in 1956.  It was replaced by Hainton House a commercial block which in 2015 has several of its retail units unused.

The chapel's Manse was in Eleanor Street.  The site in 2015 is occupied by the Salvation Army hostel.
