Tip's End (Tipp's End) Primitive Methodist chapel

There’s an account by Robert Smart in the 1846 Primitive Methodist magazine about the first anniversary celebrations at Tip’s End Primitive Methodist chapel.  This then dates the opening of the chapel to October 1845.

I cannot see a chapel on late Nineteenth Century Ordnance Survey maps.

This is the account:

“Tip’s-End is a small village in the Upwell Circuit; and the first anniversary of our small, neat Connexional chapel here, was held on October 4th, 1 846 ; when three impressive sermons were preached by our highly respected minister, Mr. John Phillips. On the afternoon of the 5th, a sermon was preached by the Rev. J. Porter, Baptist minister, of Upwell ; and after a public tea several interesting addresses were delivered to a deeply attentive and crowded audience. The trays for tea, and a neat cushion for the pulpit, were respectfully given by the ladies, to whom we tender our sincere thanks. The collections amounted to upwards of £7 — a liberal sum for the place !

Robert Smart”
