Location of former United Methodist chapel in Grange Road

Was there a Primitive Methodist chapel on Grange Road?

By Christopher Hill

When the Primitive Methodist Conference came to Middlesbrough in 1932 - the very last Primitive Conference - one of the services was held in Grange Road chapel.  We have the photograph from the Conference Handbook.

However, I can find no reference to a Primitive Methodist chapel in Grange Road in any of the normal sources, but there was a United Methodist chapel.  The Ordnance Survey map of 1929 shows it at the corner of Victoria Square, at the junction of Dunning Road and Grange Road.  Is that the chapel in the picture?  It was not uncommon for the PM Conference to use a venue belonging to another denomination, especially if they needed to accommodate more people.  

Please let us know if you can.
