By Christopher Hill

The chapel was built in 1849 and rebuilt in 1904.  The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) says that the main employment was stocking manufacture and that the Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists had chapels. 

Interestingly, Kelly's Directory of the Counties of Derby, Notts, Leicester and Rutland records that in 1891 there were two Primitive Methodist chapels in Wessington township.

The chapel is now a house.
