Crewe Primitive Methodist chapel

but not that one - probably.

By Christopher Hill

The 1859 Primitive Methodist magazine contains an account by John Webster of the opening of Crewe Primitive Methodist chapel.

Crewe is described as a small hamlet in the Whitchurch circuit, although I cannot locate it on local maps. The chapel, which was the only place of worship in the neighbourhood, opened on November 21st 1858 with addresses from T Bateman and Mrs Webster. The following day there was a tea-meeting in a large tent.

The new chapel was 22' x 15' and cost around £90 of which £30 had been raised. Mr R Compton carted most of the materials and Mrs John Baker gave the pulpit cushion and window blinds.

Can anyone say more?
