Bluntisham Primitive Methodist chapel

Brothers Tall, Wiles, Bunn and Austen were sent to mission Bluntisham in 1844, starting with a camp meeting on April 28th 1844. The new society met in Mr Robert Weaton’s barn and then a plot of land with two cottages was purchased for £80. One cottage was taken  down and the foundation stone for a new chapel laid on September 30th 1844.

The chapel opened on Thursday November 21st 1844. Brother Phillips and Bro. Kirby of Rockland preached. The brick built chapel measured 33′ x 23′, the one remaining substantial cottage yielded £3 per year and there was enough room on the site to allow for expansion. The overall cost was £194.

I can’t find a Prim chapel on Ordnance Survey maps.  Where ws the chapel and what happened to it?
