Keith Guyler's exceptional collection of pictures of chapels which were formerly Primitive Methodist includes one labelled Cooke Street, Bentley. Thanks to Howard Richter for pointing out that this was in fact a Wesleyan and providing pictures of the appropriate chapel - see the comments below for more detail.

The Primitive Methodist chapel was nearby, in Chapel Street. In 2018 it is in use by the Christadelphians.

Comments about this page

Thanks to Howard for pointing out that the picture does not show the Bentley PM chapel.  "The building pictured was a Wesleyan chapel from the time of its building in 1818 until a new WM chapel was built nearby in 1892, and was marked as such on OS maps of those days. After the Wesleyans moved out to their new larger chapel, the building in your picture became (I am told) a joinery workshop until demolition in 2006 - this last serving to explain Mr. Hill was 'unable to find it on Google Street View in 2012'. Again, this claim is consistent with evidence from OS maps."

I've corrected the photograph's description.
