Stoner's Green (Stone's Green) Primitive Methodist chapel
Stone's Green Road CO12 5BT
The Primitive Methodist Magazine of February 1851 contains a short description by R. Eaglen of the opening of Stoner’s Green Primitive Methodist chapel. A plot of land was rented for £2/10/0 a year and the chapel built.
The chapel was opened on Sunday 24th November 1850 and “although it rained heavily all the day, the chapel was crowded and the collections were liberal.”
The new chapel was 25′ x 18′, built of red brick and well lighted.
An initial difficulty when I first found the report was that I couldn’t find where Stoner’s Green was -or is. All I knew was that it was in the Ipswich circuit. Thanks to contributors to the comments for unscrambling the mystery.
