A chapel which dates from 1833.”
The opening of Newton Primitive Methodist chapel in the Cwm circuit is described by W Horsell in the Primitive Methodist magazine.
Preachers first came to the parish in 1827 and meetings were held at the ‘farm.’ The chapel was opened on 16/03/1833 & 17/03/1833. Preachers on the Sunday were Messrs Grieve, Foster & Horsell and on the Monday Messrs Morish, Adams & Rich.
There were no other denominations in the township. The cost of the new chapel was £75 and the society was hoping to start a Sunday school.
The new chapel measured 18′(w) x 24′(l) x 12′(h).
The only problem is that there are quite a few Newtons even within the Cwm circuit extent, but because the opening date is the same, it is almost certainly this one.
