The first Baughurst Primitive Methodist chapel was opened in 1845 and served until 1872 when it was replaced by the chapel in Keith Guyler’s photograph.  This chapel served until it was closed in 1987.

It is now a private house.

  • The building that was once Baughurst Methodist Chapel stands on land that belonged to Upper Farm owned by one of my ancestors George Jacob. My late cousin Iris Stanley related to me the following tale. I hope I have it correct.

    George was one of the trustees of the congregation and wanted to donate some land on which to build a chapel. Not being able to give himself land he already owned, he resigned his position and sold the trustees the land for £5. He then donated £5 to chapel funds and became a trustee again! I suspect this was the simplest way he knew around the legalities.
