Bournemouth Springbourne Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1884 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Springbourne, a suburb of Bournemouth.

The 1885 Primitive Methodist magazine contains a note of the opening of the new  chapel.  Springbourne is described as a suburb of the fashionable health resort chiefly inhabited by the labouring classes.

Where was the church and what happened to it?

  • A Primitive Methodist chapel on the “corner of Malmesbury Road, Springbourne” was registered for worship on 27 March 1885 (number on the Worship Register: 28542). Assuming this is the present-day Malmesbury Park Road, the only place of worship shown on this road on maps of that era is an unspecified “mission hall”; there is now a pair of semi-detached houses on the site (coordinates: 50.732926, -1.859173). The chapel’s registration was cancelled in 1925.
