Bishop's Nympton Primitive Methodist chapel

The opening of Bishop’s Nympton Primitive Methodist chapel is described by T Lane in the Primitive Methodist magazine.

Bishop’s Nympton, South Molton Mission.—February 23rd, 1862, we opened our new room at Bishop’s Nympton, Thomas Lane preached morning and evening, and the Rev. Moses Saunders, Baptist, preached in the afternoon, and one soul was saved in the evening. On the following day at three o’clock, a sermon was preached by the Rev. C. Harrison, Independent. Subsequently a tea meeting was held, when about 115 persons sat around tables gratuitously supplied by the members and friends. The money raised amounted to about £6 10s., which will be appropriated towards the seating of the room, etc. We are happy to inform you that we have more than forty members at the place. And though we meet with opposition from those who call themselves the people of God, yet God blesses our labours. 

I cannot find a Primitive Methodist chapel on the 1890 Ordnance Survey map, although there is a Wesleyan Methodist chapel.  Where was the Prim chapel and what happened to it?
