Greetland Primitive Methodist chapel

location of former Lindwell Primitive Methodist chapel, Greetland

By Christopher Hill

In the September 1858 Primitive Methodist magazine we are told that Greetland Primitive Methodist chapel was not big enough for the number in the Sunday school so they moved a wall several feet back.  

This was possibly the Lindwell chapel on The Carriage Drive.  On Google StreetView in June 2015 it is still recognisable as a chapel but in the process of conversion.
