By Christopher Hill

The first Martin Primitive Methodist chapel was in Mill Lane and dates from 1837. After the second chapel was built in 1879 it became the Sunday School between 1879 and 1887. At the time of Keith Guyler's photograph in 1996 it was "Chapel House".

The replacement chapel in the High Street dates from 1879 with a Sunday School added in 1887. The chapel served until 1988. At the time of Keith Guyler's photograph in 1995 it is occupied by Majestic Crystal Limited, suppliers and engravers of glassware.

Lincolnshire Archives, Lincoln:

Ref. MLI82835:

This has a history to include the previous PM Chapel on Mill Lane and with photographs of it. It was once a single story building built 1837, the front roadside wall low down having a stone plaque reading 'Primitive Methodist Chapel, built 1837'. In 1858 the Chapel was extended higher and an additional plaque near to the apex of the roof reading 'Primitive Chapel 1858', the words built and Methodist not included because it refers to the height-  extension. There is no picture of a third stone plaque but it can just be seen on one for the whole building low down on the left on the roadside wall. After further investigation, this stone plaque (and looking quite old) reads 'Chapel House'. It is now a private home.

Kind regards,
