Southampton Bevois Town Primitive Methodist chapel


Southampton Bevois Town Primitive Methodist chapel
Keith Guyler 1995

Bevois Town Primitive Methodist chapel in Liverpool St opened in 1867 and according to Keith Guyler’s notes closed in the 1950’s/1960.  At the time of his photograph in 1995 and on Google Street View in  May 2014, it was in use as a Jewish Synagogue.

Just to add a twist, although Keith Guyler refers to Liverpool Street chapel, it looks as though a previous entrance was in Dover Street which is parallel to Liverpool Street and the current entrance to the Synagogue is in Mordaunt Road.

  • I was told by a local Methodist historian that the Liverpool Street Chapel was bombed during the war.
    The chapel site looks now is a patch of grass.
    The church hall with an entrance on to Dover Street survived is the building now used as a synagogue. The Jewish worshipers access their site by way of Liverpool Street by a path over the site of the bombed chapel.
    The Dover Street entrance is now bricked up.
