Peterborough Cobden Street Primitive Methodist chapel
Cobden Street, PE1 2HA
There was a Primitive Methodist society in Peterborough in the early 1830’s and a Circuit established in 1839. This was based on the church in New Road (built 1862, closed 1953). In 1888 a second Circuit was established, centred on the chapel in Cobden Street which had been opened in 1871. It accommodated 650 people and was built on a site presented by Mr. I. Edis.
It had a brass band which came third in the Peterborough contest held on the 25th September 1897 conducted by F Richardson.
The chapel closed in 1965. Keith Guyler notes that the Sunday School became the Ukrainian Church, whilst the chapel was a disused store.
On Google Street View in 2016, the chapel has been demolished and there is now a mosque on the site. The Sunday School is now Kinder Care Nursery school.
