Loiney Primitive Methodist chapel
Do you know where this was?
The Primitive Methodist magazine for June 1852 contains an account by Joseph Hutchings of the opening of Loiney Primitive Methodist chapel in the Presteign circuit.
The chapel was stone built, and roofed in slate, 29′ x 19′ and 16′ high. It cost £70 and about £40 had been raised. The land was given free of charge by Edward Leah James and Edward Jenkins.
The opening took place from 11th April 1852. Sermons were preached by Rev William Martin from Newtown. At the subsequent tea meeting addresses came from Rev E Williams, W Martin, T Story, E Cowdell, T Davies. Thje following Sunday preachers were Rev Thomas Brothwood, James Nott, Rev W Martin.
During the period of building the society doubled in size.
Can anyone locate where Loiney was? Was it in Wales, Herefordshire, Shropshire? Has the name changed? Was it mis-spelled?
What happened to the chapel and the society?
