To find out about Belton Providence Primitive Methodist chapel explore the Akers - Ellmer - Bilton family page on this website.

Providence chapel at Churchtown was initially built in 1821 and then enlarged in 1835. It was rebuilt in 1888 with a Sunday school opening in 1923. The last service was held in 1948.  

Keith Guyler's notes say that it became derelict, was demolished and a bungalow built on the site.  The grid reference he quotes is marked as a chapel on the 1946 1" Ordnance Survey map but I unable to identify the replacement bungalow on Google Street View.
