The Gateshead circuit launched a number of missions in the second part of the Nineteenth century, one of which was in George Street. The missions were successful and at one time the Primitive membership in Gateshead was more than that in Newcastle itself.
The George Street mission in the Gateshead Second circuit outgrew its accommodation and led in turn to a new school chapel just off Askew Road on Bank Street at its junction with Marian Street. At first they built only part of the plan, costing £1,100, intending to complete at a future date. Did they ever manage it?
The chapel is still there on the 1968-70 Ordnance Survey plan but the area has since been thoroughly redeveloped.
