New South Moor Primitive Methodist chapel

The foundation stones for a new school-chapel at New South Moor were laid in 1893 It was in the Stanley station.

Exceptionally, the Colliery Company presented the site, valued at £200, in recognition of the obligatory duties that employers have – and are all too often forgotten.

Ordnance Survey maps show the chapel on South Moor Road, where the junction with Derwent Rise is now.  The chapel in time became Central Methodist church and disappears from OS maps both in name and footprint between 1970 and 1981.
