Tyd Gate Primitive Methodist chapel

Wisbeach circuit.

By Christopher Hill

Tyd Gate Primitive Methodist chapel was opened on July 17th 1859. Speakers at the services and following day's tea meeting included R Howchin, (Lynn), Rev Mr Archer (Wesleyan), J Crabtree, Rev Dalby (Wesleyan), Rev Hester and William Crown who wrote about the experience in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

J Kerridge drew up the plans and specification free of charge, but the whole development, including boarded floor, slate roof, a rood of land and the cottage on it cost £258/10/-. Towards this they had raised £86, in part through a tea for 280.

Where was Tyd Gate and what happened to it?

I preached at Tydd Gote back in the 1990's. By that time it was part of "Rural Ministries" (formerly the Datchett Evangelical Fellowship) and being run as an Independent Evangelical Church.

Thanks Martin for making the link between Tyd Gate and Tydd Gote.  There is ready a page for the chapel at  http://www.myprimitivemethodists.org.uk/page/tydd_gote_primitive_methodist_chapel.  I'll transfer all the information here, especially your experience and update, to the other page, which has a fuller history.
