By Christopher Hill

Keith Guyler's notes which accompany the photograph say that the Walton Primitive Methodist chapel closed in the 1960s.  It accommodated 130 and at the time of the Keith Guyler photograph is a gospel hall.

The Primitive Methodist magazine for 1836 contains an account by E Butters and M Taylor of the opening of Walton Primitive Methodist chapel  in the Primitive Methodist chapel - probably (but not certainly!) this Walton.

The opening preachers at the services on August 9th 1835 were G Tetley and W Catliff.
