The Primitive Methodist magazine for 1829 contains an account by Thomas Butcher of the opening of Great Broughton Primitive Methodist chapel in the Burton-upon Trent circuit. Opening services were held on Sunday 2nd November 1828 and were conducted by Brothers J Woolley and Hugh Bourne.

The chapel was described as “in a pleasant situation on rising ground” and was”well filled”.

In 1859 it was “improved, repaired, cleaned and painted”. The re-opening took place from July 31st 1859 and included a tea meeting for 100 (even though it rained). Speakers were Rev Hurd and Mr Barfoot. Joseph Salisbury described the occasion.
