Great Kingshill Primitive Methodist chapel

High Wycombe circuit

The Primitive Methodist magazine for February 1853 contains an account by J Jackson of the opening of Great Kingshill Primitive Methodist chapel. Great Kingshill is described as a hamlet in Hughenden parish first missioned in 1835 or 1836. In early 1852 revival led to the growth of the society so that it outgrew the cottage it met in so a new chapel was built. Opening services were held from November 21st 1852, with sermons by D Mossop, W Butler, J Fuller S Nash, Mrs Jackson and J Hunt.

The chapel was 27′ x 22′ and 14′ high, built of brick with a slate roof. It cost around £120 of which they had raised £35. Thanks for particular donations were due to Master WJ Garland, Mrs Cox, J Hunt and S Nash.

I can’t identify where the chapel was or what happened to it; can anyone help?

  • It is Cryers Hill Methodist Church in the High Wycombe circuit, they are celebrating their 165th anniversary this Sunday.See “250 years of Chiltern Methodism” by Barry Sutcliffe and David Church page 188. I found this site as I am planned to preach there and was interested to find out a bit more about their history.
