Garesfield Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1884 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us they were starting work on  a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Garesfield in the White le Head station.

The 1896 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel in a small community  just south of Victoria Garesfield colliery, by Victoria Terrace. By the 1919 map a Sunday school has been added in front of the chapel. It is still there in 1946

Street View is not brave enough to venture there. Is there any evidence of the chapel – or of its small community?
