Hi, At this time during lockdown I am writing up my childhood memoirs of Coleford. (I am nearer 70 than 60!) In doing so I am looking all over the web for information. And found your website. And would reference to the Methodist Church website as a source would like to use the dates published I once went to a Jumble sale in the school room and can remember the building being there The Prim. (as I knew it) is in High Street not Springers Hill, was pulled down completely and the school room turned into a house by Commander John Price (RN) and his German wife Evelyn. The House was /is called Hobbiton. Noon Cottage is further up the road (Springers Hill) One last thing I came across a large bible from the Prim with connections to the Button / Green Family and gave it to Radstock Mining Museum, about 20 years ago Finally some years ago as a parish councillor I took the opportunity to ensure that the name of a new road on a housing estate in the area where Wesley preached was not called after the builders but Preachers Close. I wanted something like Wesley fields etc. but a little is better than nothing! Please contact me if you wish Stay Safe…….. Steve
And he was my great grandfather, too! Anna Rebecca Rudd (nee Peel).
