By Christopher Hill

Levening Primitive Methodist chapel (now usually spelled Leavening) in the Hull circuit was opened on Sunday 8th October 1820.

The preacher at the opening was John Verity, who wrote an account of it in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

There is a picture of the chapel on York Road/ Main Street here. As it says, the chapel was demolished to be replaced by a house. All that is left is the run of railings that used to stand in front of the chapel
