Overseal Primitive Methodist chapel
Goster-Lees (Gorsey Leys) DE12 6JE
The laying of the foundation stone of Overseal Primitive Methodist chapel in Goster Lees is reported in the Primitive Methodist magazine by John Brining.
George Broadhurct (Linton) laid the stone. T King and J. Brining preached. Tea for 350 from all the surrounding villages was provided.
Goster Leys turns out to be Gorsey Leys. The chapel is shown on the 1:2,500 Ordnance Survey map of 1883 but has disappeared by 1901. Are any of the buildings in the area the remnants of the former chapel?
