The plaque on the building in Keith Guyler's photograph reads "Primitive Methodist Chapel 1861".  It is located on Baybridge Lane.

The hamlet of Baybridge lies about a mile, as the cow flies, south-east of Owslebury village in Hampshire.  At the start of the 20th century it consisted of a small group of cottages, a Primitive Methodist chapel, and the farm-houses and out-buildings of Baybridge and Lower Whiteflood Farms.

The chapel closed in 1962.  At the time of the photograph in 1988 Mr Guyler's notes say it was in use as a private garage. On Google Street View in July 2011 it looks much more like a house.

Location: SU 5271 2330
