The first Legbourne Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1834. Its opening is described by John Wright in the Primitive Methodist magazine. Preachers at the opening on 24th August 1834 were J Butcher and John Wright. William Byron of North Reston gave the land for the chapel.

The 1834 chapel served until 1892 when it was replaced by a second chapel.

It closed in 1983. On Google Street View in 2009 it is a rather elegant house.
