The 1881 Primitive Methodist magazine contains an account of the laying of the foundation stones for a neat little Primitive Methodist chapel in the Gothic style at Bournemouth. It was expected to cost £1,000 which was beyond the means of the local society. The magazine editor suggested that the Connexion ought to partially fund chapels in places such as holiday resorts where the demand was high in high season.
Later in the year the magazine reports that the chapel ha been completed.
