Ramsbottom Primitive Methodist chapel

By Christopher Hill

Ramsbottom Primitive Methodist chapel in the Bolton Circuit was opened on 1/09/1833 - but as the day was so wet the opening day was repeated once everything had dried out. The event was described by S Tillotson.

The fund for the new chapel was started by a gentleman with £20 and he let the society have the land at one penny per yard chief rent.  The chapel measured 24'(w) x 30'(l) x 21'(h).

The Sunday school had 150 members.

Where was the chapel and what happened to it?
