There are two returns from Primitive Methodists in Midsomer Norton to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship. The smaller preaching house had 24 people attending a morning service; it held 30. The larger had 60 people attending in afternoon and evening services.

The return for the larger preaching place was completed by James Jones, a coal miner.

In a comment on the Radstock chapel page, Jeff Parsons tells us the there were later two Primitive Methodist chapels in Midsomer Norton –

  • Midsomer Norton Stones Cross (now Salvation Army)
  • Midsomer Norton Redfield Road (demolished 1996 now housing). This was built by  the society initially meeting in James Jones miner’s cottage.  Jeff believes that the architect was J Hicks, who was also the architect for Claremont Primitive Methodist chapel in Bath
