Portsmouth Albert Road Primitive Methodist chapel

The memorial stones for Portsmouth Albert Road Primitive Methodist chapel were laid in 1887 and the occasion and the subsequent opening are noted in the Primitive Methodist magazine. The new chapel held seated around 300 and half the cost had been raised by the opening.

For 25 years previously, the Prims had worshipped in chapel that was a small brick building. Eventually, in 1887,  a new iron church was erected in front of the small brick building, which had been purchased several years before from the Bible Christians.   The Bible Christian chapel is shown on the 1874 Ordnance Survey plan located immediately east of where the Kings Theatre is in 2020

In 1901 a  much bigger Primitive Methodist Central Hall has built in Albert Road. You can read about it here.
