Biggin by Hulland Primitive Methodist Chapel

Biggin by Hulland Primitive Methodist Chapel

This former chapel is located in Biggin, a mile off the road between Hulland and Turnditch. It is not to be confused with Biggin by Hartington.
The former chapel is to the left of the road as Biggin is approached from the south.
Though the appearance of the chapel has been changed by porches and extensions, the date stone remains in situ, stating ‘Primitive Methodist Chapel, 1894?’ Date a little obscured .
It is now called ‘Chapel House.’
The records for this chapel 1891-1964 are held in the Derbyshire Record Office.

  • The Rev John Redhead, my great grandfather, was Minister for the Ashbourne Circuit from 1893 to 1898. In his 1910 memoirs he wrote: “We also started a Village Church – an off-shoot from Ashbourne – built a New Chapel at Biggin, and raised nearly the whole of the cost and laid the foundations for another Chapel and Schools at Hognaston.” This fits with the date on the date stone being 1894.
