Colehill Primitive Methodist chapel was built by William Habgood's building firm and opened in 1913.   Apparently at the opening  Mrs Dorcas Habgood played the harmonium outside the chapel, accompanied by three fiddlers.  

Previously the society had met in a hut known as Little Lonnen Chapel in Four Wells Road. 

A full account of the story of Colehill Primitive Methodist chapel can be seen on the Dorset Life website.  It is still active in 2015.
