Is this the same place as Hylton chapel?  The date of opening is the same – 1837

  • Thanks Richard. I have merged all the information onto the Hylton chapel page.

  • It is my understanding that Hylton and South Hylton PM were one in the same. North Hylton was the Wesleyan chapel and of course the Independents had chapels at Hylton and still do at South Hylton.

    The Sunderland Echo for 18 May 1880, records that the previous day, Mrs Browning had laid the foundation stone for a new chapel at Lower High Street, South Hylton for the Primitive Methodists. The chapel was to cost £650. Following the stone-laying, 350 people sat down to a tea meeting and over the course of the day, £195 11s 3d was raised towards the cost of the chapel. This building continued in use until closure some time before 2012
