Crawford Village Primitive Methodist Church

The first chapel was built in 1856

Is this the 1856 chapel?

It is likely that the original chapel lies directly behind the facade that we can see in the photos. The rear part of the building is constructed of red and blue brick whereas the front is built of facing bricks hence the plaque ‘Rebuilt 1909’.

It closed for worship about 12 years ago and in 2016 is a dwelling.

  • The rear of the building is indeed from around 1850 when the village was developed as a mining village.  This is the original church hall.  The later addition was added in 1909 to expand as the congregation had grown.  Sadly it was out of use for some time before 2001 when it was converted to residential use.  The original outbuilding to the rear was briefly the village post office from around 1994 until the closure of the chapel.
