Pelsall Primitive Methodist chapel

location of former Pelsall Paradise Primitive Methodist chapel

Paradise Lane Pelsall WS3 4NH

By Christopher Hill

The Primitive Methodist magazine for March 1854 includes an account by W Rooke of the opening of Pelsall Primitive Methodist chapel.  The first sermons were preached on January 15th 1854 by brothers Hutchings, Rooke, Bradburn, Cox and Mrs Rae.

The chapel was 24' long x 18' wide and 15' high to the wall plate. Of prepossessing appearance, it was built of brick and shared a roof with a house built on the same plot.  

The Ordnance Survey map of 1884 shows Paradise Primitive Methodist chapel on Paradise Street, close to its junction with Hall Lane.  It is still there, as Pelsall Methodist church in 1969.  Then it disappears.  There is no evidence of it on Google Street View in April 2016.

There is an error here. Paradise Primitve Chapel was much further along Paradise Lane and was demolished many years ago. The present-day Methodist church is a modern extension to the former Wesley Schools...a totally different building. I will try to send you a photo of the old Paradise Primitive Chapel, but there is an image..clickintime is Walsall Met History library of images..one is in this collection

kind regards
