Abbotsbury Primitive Methodist chapel

The return from the Primitive Methodist preaching place in Abbotsbury to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship was completed by Robert Vincent, a local preacher. The society had been meeting in the same accommodation from 1845. It had 40 free seats and on Census Sunday 31 people attended the single service which was held in the evening.

It did not have a Sunday School.

The 1901 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel behind the School at the junction of Market Street and Back Street.  Street View does not give a view.  but the satellite view implies that some evidence of the chapel remains. What happened to it?
