Redmire Primitive Methodist chapel

Hargill Lane, Redmire, DL8 4ED

By Christopher Hill

Redmire Primitive Methodist chapel was opened on Sunday 7th September 1828. Opening services were taken by Brothers Thompson and King.

The land was given by Mr Stockwell, a local farmer.  It was the only place of worship in the village.

The chapel is marked on the 1893 and 1913 1:2,500 Ordnance Survey maps but by 1983 had become the village hall.

My only hesitation is that the researcher who provided the information suggested that Redmire was in the Nottingham circuit.

Since the address is a real location in North Yorkshire, one must assume that the reference to the 'Nottingham circuit' is erroneous. Could it have been the Northallerton circuit?

Given the early date of the opening, there were many fewer 'circuits' than a few years later. Given the geography, one might have thought it was part of Hull circuit, but it is possible that the location was missioned by visitors from the Nottingham circuit and hence the reference to Nottingham.

Redmire chapel in Wensleydale was Wesleyen not Primitive.

A wild thought but could this be an erroneous reference to Redhill in Notts? In 'A History of Arnold' by Rev R W King and Rev J Russell (1913) there is an entry in the chapter on Chapels that reads, "Primitive Methodist. The worshippers met in a barn belonging to Mr Peck, until a chapel was built in 1829. It was enlarged in 1887 and additional land has since been purchased for a further extension." Redhill lies to the northeast of Arnold in the former Arnold Urban District.
