Glinton Primitive Methodist chapel, which accommodated 150 people, was opened in 1861 and closed in the 1970s.  It became the village hall and is shown as such on Google Street View in 2012

In the Primitive Methodist Leader of April 20th 1911, this account was found:

At Glinton on Good Friday we were visited by the New Road P.M. C.E; Choral Society from Peterborough. After a public tea in the afternoon, the Choral Society, consisting of about thirty voices, rendered the cantata eel-titled " The Land Beyond," in tfie evening, under the conductorship of Mr. W. H. Clarke, with Mr. G. W. Stimpson as-organist. The chair was-occupied , by Mr. C. Green, of Peterborough. The chapel was full, numbers having to stand. Proceeds, which were for Trust Funds, were in advance of last year.
