Hereford: Primitive Methodist Chapel

HER no. 36573, OS grid ref: SO 5128 3984

This chapel was built in 1880 to replace the earlier Methodist Chapel further along St. Owen Street (see above). It is a Gothic-style construction of good size with impressive interior galleries. The front wall is of three bays with a pediment enclosing a date-tablet. There was originally a central entrance with a small window above and tall windows with round-arched heads on either side.

The church is still open today (2015) being the largest church in the Herefordshire (South and East) Methodist Circuit.
