The church was converted sometime ago and is now Gateshead Mosque
The Lamproom Theatre at the western end of Westgate is in fact a former Primitive Methodist chapel. Was that this one? It is marked as Primitive on an Ordnance Survey map of 1852 and a plan of 1889.
I have recently come across a letter dated 1900, written by my great grandfather, Henry Williams Braddock, in which he claims to have been the architect of a Primitive Methodist Chapel at Barnton in Cheshire, the project costing £1,300. I would be interested to know if yours is the chapel in question and if you have any more information about its design.
