The Vernham Dean Primitive Methodist chapel in Keith Guyler’s picture was opened in 1869.  It replaced a previous building that was opened on October 26th 1845. The 1845 building seated 108 with standing room for 12.  Charles Hunt and Richard Dawkes, the steward, tell us that the afternoon attendance was 70 and in the evening 81.

In Keith Guyler’s photograph  the chapel appears disused.  On Google Street View in 2009 its use is unclear.

  • This closed in the late 1990s and by c2000 a Canadian had purchased the cottage behind and the chapel that she used to create fine embroidery and beadwork. She was featured in a TV program c2000 called “Country Ways” about Vernham Dean and it’s surroundings.
    P.S. I lived in the village until 2001.
