Comments about this page

The Primitive Methodists had a chapel on Derby Road from 1853 to 1928 when the buildings were demolished to make way for the Watchorn. In 1877 they opened a Mission Hut on Alma Street which proved so successful the congregation bought a piece of land on Nottingham Road for £136 and in the following year opened the Ebenezer chapel. The Alma Street building continued in use as a schoolroom but in 1882 it was dismantled and re-erected behind the new church.
