Nenthead Primitive Methodist chapel was noted as the highest church in England. Even though Nenthead was a small chapel, one person born in the village became a Primitive Methodist missionary to what was then Fernando Po, now Bioko. Matthew H Barron died there on January 22nd 1901 and there is a memorial plaque to him in the remaining Methodist church at Malabo.
The chapel is already on Ordnance Survey maps by 1859 and is still marked as an active chapel in 1924. By 1953 the building is still there but unlabelled.
On Street View in 2009, what is substantially the same building exists , with the same footprint and overall dimensions, but the external features have changed.
