The chapel has a plaque dated 1878. In the Statistical Returns for 1972 it states that the chapel opened in 1865 whereas the date on the plaque indicates a date thirteen years later!

The chapel sits on the edge of Bents Garden Centre car park. The date of closure is unknown. In 2013 Bents were using the chapel building for the garden centre’s maintenance team. Sadly, in 2015 the chapel had been demolished and a roundabout built, as shown in final photo

The Primitive Methodist magazine tells us that in 1877 they laid the foundation stone for Glazebury chapel. Completing the chapel cost them £1,100, including the land. Four years later, when the debt was down to £150, they laid the foundation stone for a Sunday school.
