Lexden Primitive Methodist chapel
Straight Road Colchester, Essex CO3 9BY
Lexden Primitive Methodist chapel near Colchester was opened in 1859 and is still active in 2020. The stone over the door confirms the 1859 opening date.
The chapel in Keith Guyler’s picture, although labelled Primitive Methodist chapel in his archive, is actually the Assemblies of God chapel, also still in use in 2019. It is about 100 metres away down the same road and appears on Ordnance Survey maps in 1923 marked as ‘club’. Thanks to Martin Broom for confirming my suspicions of the error and supplying the proper picture..
