This is a list of chapels that had been registered by 1867. Remember that registration was not compulsory. As registration was valid until cancelled, however, there may be duplication: i.e.  both the old and new chapels in a place may be listed. We have also discovered that the official location may not be the same as the name by which the chapel is commonly described.

Use the search box to find out more about a chapel. With one exception, all the Primitive Methodist chapels are in the Upper Eden valley, on the edge of the Pennines, a lead mining and hill farming district. The numbers on the list match those on the map. The county was missioned from the east, across Stainmore. The chapel known to have been in Kendal is missing from the Registrar General’s list.
