Middleton in Teesdale Primitive Methodist Chapel Co Durham

This chapel was built in 1872 and was also known as the Bourne PM Chapel.

Middleton in Teesdale Bourne PM Chapel possibly closed for worship 25-30 years ago. In 2013 the chapel building has been very tastefully converted into self-catering holiday accommodation for up to 14 people and is called Springfield House.

  • Even more information appears on the article about the Middleton-in-Teesdale Circuit, elsewhere on this site, which mentions the ebbs and flows of the cause. I find it interesting that, according to the Registrar General’s list of 1867, none of the Primitive Methodist chapels in Teesdale were registered for public worship. Is this an error in compiling the list, a lapse by a succession of ministers, or had the cause temporarily expired in 1867? Has anyone found other evidence of registration?

  • To take the story back a little further, I’ve added a transcript by David Tonks of the return from Middleton in Teesdale Primitive Methodists for the Census of Places of Public Religious worship.

  • Thomas Dearlove tells us in the Primitive Methodist magazine (April 1861 page 232) that in 1860 the society bought  an existing chapel for £80 of which they had raised £40.
