Reddings Primitive Methodist chapel
Joys Green, Lydbrook
In the 1863 Primitive Methodist magazine, G Dobson tells us about the opening of Reddings Primitive Methodist chapel in the Pillawell circuit. Neither I nor Google maps had any idea where Reddings was. See the comments for clarification.
“Reddings, Pillawell. Station.—Here the Primitive Methodists have begun the building of a neat Connexional chapel. The foundation stone was laid by the writer, October 14th, 1802. The weather was most unpropitious ; but a little company of liberal hearted working people attended the service, and £2 were obtained towards the chapel.
After a few observations from the writer, his colleague, the Rev. J. Broadhurst, gave a short address. Mrs. Bennett, Sen., gives £5, the consideration price of the land ; her son, Mr. Bennett, and his wife, give all the stone ; which, together with £7 3s. 6d., the profits of a tea meeting, and other sources of income, will place the chapel in easy circumstances. G. Dobson”
