Pillawell (Pillowell) Primitive Methodist chapel 1835

In the 1847 Primitive Methodist magazine, Robert Langford tells us of the opening of  Pillawell Primitive Methodist chapel after enlargement. After they first opened a chapel in 1835 , society membership grew especially with the opening of a Sunday school in 1844, so they added five feet to the width and four feet to the height so a gallery could be added. It cost £34.

The chapel re-opened on November 15th 1846 with sermons by Rev Penny (Coleford) and Mr Nicholson (Sydney) – both Baptists.

The chapel still exists in residential use.
