Comments about this page

"We have needed (a chapel) some time, but could not obtain land to build on, until our friend Wm. Lusby purchased a small estate in the vicinity of the village, and generously offered a site for a chapel. The friends wished to have a more convenient place, yet determined if they could not build where they would, they would build where they could, and rather than be without a house in which to worship God, they would cheerfully submit to a little inconvenience in attending their present one." (C Kendall Primitive Methodist magazine September 1861 page 556).

The chapel opened on May 19th 1861 and cost £100 of which they had raised half. There was a celebration tea meeting together with sermons by J. Coatsworth, Esq., (Wesleyan) and Wm. Render, of Hull
