Keith Guyler's notes say that the first North Walsham Primitive Methodist chapel was opened early, in 1820 and served until 1890.  By the 1980s it has become a printing works. Just a warning - a thread on the RootsWeb site says that it was the Wesleyan chapel that was opened in 1820: the Primitive Methodist chapel dates from 1827.

The chapel was enlarged in 1861 by the addition of a gallery, with repairs, cleaning and the addition of gas lighting.  Preachers at the re-opening on June 2nd 1861 included Rev. T. Charlton, of Docking and Rev. J. P. Smythe, of Worstead.

A second chapel was built in 1890 and extended in 1987.  It is still active in 2015.
