In the Primitive Methodist magazine, J Knipe tells us that Brother W Bishop first missioned Dassell around 1862. Meeting were initially held in a cottage., then a building provided by WB Wyman of Stonebury, before, after three years, a piece of land was bought and presented to the society by WB Wyman. The foundation stone for a chapel was laid by Mr Wymna’s youngest son George on June 3rd 1868. Speakers included Revs J Langham (Saffron Walden) and J Knipe.
The chapel was opened on September 20th 1868. Speakers included Rev FA Warmington (Independent minister of Buntingford), Messrs J Hendy,W Toms, East and W Bishop.
The chapel cost £130 of which £60 had been raised.
In 2020 the building still exists, in the garden of a house called Edwinstree. You can rent it as a holiday home.
