Ansty Primitive Methodist chapel

A chapel at Ansty in Dorset is included amongst the Dorset chapels registered in 1867.  It is said to be “A building the property of John Hopkins”. The 1867 registration uses the word “chapel” quite loosely and it could simply a place of worship such as a dwelling house.

The 1900 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel at Anstey Cross – and in 2021 it is still there, in residential use.  Thanks to Mark Churchill for tracking it down. Mark reports that the chapel carries the datestone for 189?, with the last digit unclear.
