By Christopher Hill

Hollingwood Primitive Methodist chapel in the Oldham circuit opened on August 14th and 15th 1831 when the preachers were Mr Tillotson and Mr J Brittain.  The event is described in the Primitive Methodist magazine by W Taylor.

Bro Garner preached at the laying of the foundation stone.

The new chapel measured 24'(w) x 30'(l).

The chapel closed in 1922. Bourne Street still exists but is now an industrial estate and in 2016 retains its cobbles; it is parallel to Clowes Street
