Dassell (Dassels) Primitive Methodist chapel

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.
