Seathorne Primitive Methodist chapel is in the northern part of the parish of Skegness and was formerly known as Skegness Bank Chapel until either around 1933 or 1980, depending on your source.

The first Seathorne Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1836. The chapel was built for the Skegness Society who worshipped here until their new chapel at Roman Bank was built in 1881.  It was taken over by Winthorpe Primitive Methodist Society in 1882. A Sunday School was added in 1954 and the chapel closed in 2009.

Keith Guyler's photograph shows the 1910 chapel on the left. His notes also say that the building on the right is the earlier chapel with a date of 1889 and is a much altered hall & community centre. This does not quite make sense: can anyone explain?
