Whitby Primitive Methodist chapel

There is a return from the Primitive Methodist society in Whitby on the Wirral  to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship. It reports that they were meeting in a dwelling house.

The 1897 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel on  the southern side of Whitby Road, just east of its junction with Vale Road. It would almost be opposite where the Salvation Army Citadel is.

  • According to the 1851 Census, Susanna Meacock lived in Whitby (detailed address not given); she was a widow farming 42 acres and employing two labourers. More interesting was the other respondent, Robert Hill, who lived at Bache Hall and described himself as Landed Proprietor and Merchant. Living with him were his wife, three sons, a niece and six servants. Bache Hall still exists; it is a Grade II-listed building on Countess View, just over a mile north of the centre of Chester.

  • An 1872/3 map shows open space (orchard?) where the later PM chapel was built.
