Sowerby Bridge Primitive Methodist chapel

By Christopher Hill

Sowerby Bridge Primitive Methodist chapel is referred to in the 1858 Primitive Methodist magazine.  John Jobling writes to share that the society needed more room for the Sunday school so it enlarged the schoolroom by adding a cottage. They also boarded the floor, cleaned and painted the chapel and added a large gas light in the centre of the ceiling.

There is no reference to a Primitive Methodist chapel in the older Ordnance Survey maps available to me - although the denomination of most chapels is not included in this town.  Where was it? Who was involved? What happened to it?
