Index of 1829 Primitive Methodist Magazine accounts of chapel openings, re-openings and foundation-stone laying

Indexed by Margaret Done

There are 17 chapel openings, re-openings and foundation stone layings listed in the 1831 volume. There are two dates for a foundation stone laying but no accounts of chapels re-opening.

Chapels at Haslingden and New Mills opened on very wet days.  When they opened New Mills chapel there was such a great flood on the opening day that several bridges were swept away and people couldn't get to the chapel.

At Banningham, Mr Rump, "a respectable local farmer," gave the land.

In Chesterfield the society had been worshipping in the home of Mr & Mrs Crook when they gained permission to erect a chapel on common land belonging to the Duke of Devonshire. The Duke gave 20 Bibles and 20 prayer books.
