Winlaton Mill Primitive Methodist chapel

Winlaton Mill Primitive Methodist chapel was opened in 1870 or just before and WR Leighton wrote about it in the Primitive Methodist magazine. It was the first chapel in the village and cost £200 but with much of the work and materials given freely.

All 200 villagers can fit in the building.

On Street View in March 2019 the building still exists; it is now on the main A694, next door to what in 2019 is the Red Kite but for a long time was the Golden Lion.  It is for sale.  I’m not sure when it closed but is still marked on OS maps in 1984 as a Methodist church.
