Audlem: Return from the Primitive Methodist chapel in the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship

The 1871 P M Chapel in Cheshire Street was open for worship until the mid 1930s when by local agreement the two Methodist societies of Audlem, Primitive & Wesleyan, joined together. They worshipped in the Wesleyan chapel in Shropshire Street. In 2013 the P M Chapel is used by the local Scout group and the community of Audlem. Interestingly on the side of the brick building by  the pavement is a plaque with the date of 1846. What did it commemorate?

  • I’ve added Return from the Primitive Methodist chapel to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious Worship. It shows the chapel as having been built in 1846 – the same date as the plaque.
