Willaston Primitive Methodist chapel 1889, Wirral
Neston Road, Willaston CH64 2TL
Christopher Wells has researched Primitive Methodism in Willaston and its two chapels of 1838 and 1889. To read a fuller account of this second chapel, download the attached pdf document.
The Primitive Methodist magazine of 1889 November tells us that they had started work on the construction of a new chapel in Willaston in the Chester First (George Street) station. They had needed “enlarged accommodation” for some time and could afford it , but could not get the land. Memorial stones were laid by the Chair of the County Council and the local MP.
The opening is recorded in the April 1890 magazine.

The church is still open today
