Folkestone Primitive Methodist chapel

Folkestone Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1877 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the memorial  stones for a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Folkestone. We are told nothing more.

The 1878 Primitive Methodist magazine contains a note of the opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel at “the popular Kentish watering place of Folkestone”.  It would accommodate 500 and there were vestries and a schoolroom in the basement.  It cost over £2,000 and over £1,000 remained as a debt.

Where was this chapel and what happened to it?
