1st and 2nd Chapels

By David Cooper

There are two former Primitive Methodist Chapels in Park Road, Mickleover, Derby. The oldest is the white painted building and has been a mechanics garage before being converted into a house. The brick building next door, being larger, was built presumably to accommodate a growing congregation.  As you can see it is now a private dwelling. At some time in the past the owner tried to obliterate the inscriptions at the front of the building which is a shame.

At the time of building the first chapel, Mickleover was a village some three miles outside Derby. Most of the folk not in trades would have been involved in agriculture. There were some framework knitters in the village who would at this time be poorly paid.
