Sandford Primitive Methodist chapel

Sherborne branch

The Primitive Methodist magazine of July 1852 contains an account by J S Brown of the opening of Sandford Primitive Methodist chapel in the Sherborne branch.

The society in early 1852 was anxious because the Coke family who had played a major role in the society and whose house the services were held in, were emigrating to  America. However, C Moody gave a place free for eight years and with some alterations costing £8/3/10 it was fitted out as a comfortable little chapel

The opening services were held on April 25th 1852 with sermons by Rev W Driffield and Mr Trask. At the following day’s tea meeting there were addresses by Messrs Driffield, Brown, Trask and Perrott.  Four souls joined the society and the full £8/3/10 was raised. Additional thanks to Messrs Marks, Perrott and Thompson.

Can anyone locate the chapel?
