  • I have no doubt that these are the same building. Dates and costs do vary from source to source, especially when people were speaking from memory many years later or simply rounding the figures. I am sure I would have tried to locate this building when I made my site visit with no more success than you have had

  • I’ve just added a page about the opening of Scalegill Primitive Methodist chapel – see here. Is that the same place? – but the year of opening and cost of construction differ.
