This page was modified on 22 June 2019 to add an article about Primitive Methodism in Thetford by Norma Virgo. The article includes a picture of the chapel interior and exterior in a street scene. Norma records that the primitive Methodist chapel building was retained until 1957, when the building was then sold.
I don’t think it was completely destroyed by bombing – or was rebuilt.
This is likley the (second) Primitive Methodist chapel 1860 – 1931. Marked on old maps and also recorded on hand drawn map. This is now a residence (called The Old Chapel)
The chapel built 1860 at the bottom of St. Thomas street. This building was acquired by Roman Catholitics and damaged by bombing in 1941.
It Became Thomas Street Methodist Church in 1932. Part of Falmouth Methodist Circuit from 1932. https://sites.google.com/site/swchurches/
This also possibly housed the Falmouth New Life Church at some point
