The notes with Keith Guyler's picture of Kettlestone Primitive Methodist chapel say simply that it closed in 1870. Should that be 1970?  By the time of his photograph in 1997 it had been converted into a house.

If you read 'The History of Kettlestone with Pensthorpe ' by Donald Tuck you will find that the Kettlestone Primitive Chapel was indeed closed in the early 1870,s. It was then converted into a Farm Worker's Cottage, a role that it filled for the following hundred years.

Mr and Mrs Brown, the present owners converted it into a Holiday Cottage in the 1980's.  My wife and I have stayed there on a god number of times on our trips to Norfolk.

An old plan for the PM Fakenham Circuit, of which Kettlestone was a member was discovered which covered the Quarter from Oct. 20th 1867 to Jan. 12th 1868.  I do not know where the plan is but a photo copy is on display in the cottage, now known as 'Chapel Cottage'.
