Hilcott Primitive Methodist chapel

By Christopher Hill

The Primitive Methodist magazine for July 1852 contains a note by H Platt of the establishment of Hilcott Primitive Methodist chapel as an addition to his account of the opening of Ogborne St George Primitive Methodist chapel (now usually spelled Ogbourne).

It tells that on Monday May 2nd 1852 a chapel at Hilcott was re-opened which seated 300.  It had been taken off the independents for a nominal rent. Wiltshire County History tells us that a decade after this (1864) the rector claimed about 40 parishioners attended the chapel. It was closed at some time between 1880 and 1885. You can see pictures on the Wiltshire Community History website.  Where was it located?
