Hasland Primitive Methodist chapels
Chapel Lane (S41 0AJ) and Hasland Road (S41 0LH)
There’s an account by ED Solomon in the Primitive Methodist magazine of the re-opening of Hasland Primitive Methodist chapel on October 15th 1865. Speakers were Revs WJ Brownson, J Haigh and ED Solomon. There was a celebration tea meeting – with the teas unusually being provided in private houses. Despite the enlargement, the chapel was “well filled”.
Where was this chapel? On Ordnance Survey maps from 1878 to 1918 a chapel – but without a denominational label – is marked on the north east side of Chapel Lane, with a Sunday School labelled to the south east of it. In 1938 the Sunday School is labelled, but not the chapel. There is a car park for the surrounding modern housing on the site in 2011.
The current (2020) Methodist church is on Hasland Road, at the junction with Hampton Street S41 0LH. It was opened in 1901 – to replace the Chapel Lane building. It carries the name “Primitive Methodist” carved into the brickwork.
