Willaston Primitive Methodist Chapel was probably built in 1875 and was used for worship until 1962 when it closed. The Society then moved to join with the Society at St. Stephen’s Methodist Church in Gainsborough Road Crewe. The Chapel had seating for 230 persons.┬áThe Chapel was demolished in 1963, to be replaced at some time with a number of modern houses.
