Keith Guyler’s notes accompanying his photograph say that Derby Street Primitive Methodist chapel in Weymouth was opened in 1902.

At the time of his photograph in 1988 and in 2015 it is a Dance studio.

There was a further Primitive Methodist chapel in St. Leonard’s Road, built in 1876, which seated 240.

  • Dorset History Centre confirm that this chapel was Wesleyan and they hold records under the reference NM9/S8 for 1893 – 1982

  • And on the 1929 Ordnance Survey map it is marked as a Wesleyan Methodist chapel. I’ve added this page to the My Wesleyan Methodists website here and will remove it from this site in due course.

  • According to two sources (The Methodist Church Buildings listings of 1940 and a local Weymouth history) this chapel was built as a Wesleyan and not a Primitive.
    It was built in 1902 and did not close until 1980. Since 1980 it has been used as a local recreation centre.
