Newcastle Road Primitive Methodist chapel

Newcastle Road Primitive Methodist chapel still stands in 2020, in use selling e-cigarettes.  Although in need of  care and attention, it still carries the words Primitive Methodist carved into the stonework.

The memorial stones were laid in 1889. The site was obtained when the North Eastern Railway company bought the chapel’s predecessor for expansion. That chapel had been in Hodgson’s buildings, described in the Primitive Methodist magazine as “a moderate building in a back street” but its sale did generate £800 towards the new chapel.

Sitelines, the  Newcastle City Council Historic Environment Record, says it closed in 1942. Thanks to Sunderland Antiquarian Society for the earlier picture.  They tell us that pictures of the chapel are hard to find.
