Joseph Street Hunslet Leeds

By Christopher Hill

Zion Primitive Methodist chapel in Joseph Street, Hunslet was built in 1874 at the junction of Joseph Street and Jack Lane.

It was one of the venues used for the Primitive Methodist Conference when it came to Leeds in 1898.

The Religion and Places in Leeds Project says that in 1905 there were 129 chapels in Leeds of one Methodist branch or another; in 2005 there were 36 of which 19 had been built post war. Zion Primitive Methodist chapel is one of those that have disappeared, closing around 1964; the whole area has been substantially re-developed.
