Oulton PM rented preaching place, Cumberland

There was rented preaching place here providing 100 seats by 1880. There  may have been a change of building in 1897 when the number of sittings fell to 80. The chapel closed on 14 November 1956. The building was in poor condition and became redundant. There was another Methodist chapel nearby. The building had not been identified. Oulton is about two miles north of Wigton.
