Torquay Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1877 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the memorial  stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Torquay. We are told nothing more.

Where was the chapel and what happened to it?

  • The Primitive Methodist chapel was in Market Street. It can be seen on the 1969-73 OS map at the junction of Market Street with Princes Road and Ellacombe Road. It was demolished in the 1970s.
    There was also a Primitive chapel in Babbacombe ( a district of Torquay) which was built in 1868. It appears on the OS map of 1890 on Babbacombe Road.

    Full details of all Methodist chapels including photos in the Torquay area are given on the website – Methodist chapels in Torquay-Terry Leaman. It may be that your position as researcher at the Englesea Museum would carry more weight than myself in a request for permission to use his material !
