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.

  • I have just come into possession of a copy of “The History of the Primitive Methodist Connexion from its origin to the conference of 1880” by John Petty, it contains an inscription in the front saying that it was presented to William Poulson esq J. P. on the occasion of his laying of a memorial stone of the Primitive Methodist chapel, Willaston on the 17th of September 1889.
    Thus suggesting that the chapel was built at this time.
