Sileby Primitive Methodist chapel location

King Street, Sileby, LE12 7NA

By Christopher Hill

Sileby was involved in the development of Primitive Methodism chapel very early.  The first chapel was in existence in 1820.  George Hanford, a lace manufacturer living in Sileby, became the President of the first Primitive Methodist Conference. 

Keith Guyler notes that the King Street chapel was opened in 1866 and the Sunday School was added in 1931.

The church is still active.
