Crich Primitive Methodist Chapel, near Matlock

The Primitive Methodist Chapel in Crich is on a steep narrow lane. It is a lovely example. In the village there were three chapels; the older Wesleyan (John preached there) Mount Tabor (Methodist) and the Primitive chapel. Now only the Wesleyan is still in use.

The Primitive chapel is being converted into a house and they have retained the gallery over the front door. Before that it was used as a motorbike workshop.
