Snitterby Carr Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1870 with a Sunday school added in 1900. It served until 1964. It's another of those chapels that you wonder where the congregation came from. Has the area changed substantially? More probably it was built on the only available pice of land.

After closure it became a house, Chapel Cottage.

Ref. Meth/C/Snitterby Carr/E/71: Letter re sale of Chapel, year 1965.

An increasing congregation would include rural parts of a village, e.g., the Carr area of Snitterby because farming families were becoming Primitive Methodists, rural village Parish Churches in at least the 19th century being in decline.

The main Primitive Methodist congregation in Snitterby attended the Primitive Methodist Chapel in the centre of the village on Church Lane, the Wesleyan Chapel being on Chapel Lane (not the other way round). On a 25 inch scale O.S. Map year 1905/6 for Snitterby there is cited Meth Chapel (prim) and Meth Chapel (wes), presumably the latter Wesleyan.
