The notes with Keith Guyler's photograph of Wendling Primitive Methodist chapel associate its development with four dates.  There is explanation on the Wendling Parish Council website.

The first chapel cost £100 to build. It was a wooden structure with a tiled roof and measured 24’ x 17’. Mr Guyler dates it from 1846 and says it became a shop and was also used at some point by the St John's Ambulance organisation - although the Parish website says it has disappeared.

The first chapel was replaced in 1877 by the chapel in the first photograph. It is currently a house - The Old Chapel

At the start of the 20th century there was a Band of Hope of 130 members and the society had grown so much it needed larger premises. In 1915 they moved across the road to a new chapel.

This was further developed in 1928.

The chapel is still in use in 2015.
