The Bridge Primitive Methodist chapel

Keith Guyler 1993

By Christopher Hill

Sturminster Newton is north west of Blandford Forum. The Bridge  Primitive Methodist chapel in Sturminster Newton opened in 1846. After it was amalgamated with the Wesleyan chapel in Church Street in 1959, this church was used as the Methodist Youth Centre and Sunday School.

Keith Guyler's notes accompanying his photograph say that it was formerly a public house.  He also refers to a second  chapel of 1870, disused. at the time of his notes.

I can't find The Bridge chapel on Google Street View; can anyone say where it is and explain the possible second chapel?

This chapel was built on the site of a previous one in 1870. It closed during the 1950's and was used as a Methodist Youth Centre until c. 2005. It is now a private house. The building behind was the Manse.
