Ince Ashton Street Primitive Methodist chapel

Ince Ashton Street Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1885 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us they were starting work on  a new Primitive Methodist chapel at Ince in the Wigan station  to replace the previous smaller one built 19 years previously.

The 1894 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel and it is still there with an adjacent Sunday school in the 1942 map. In 2009, the area has been completely redeveloped and the former terraced housing and line of Ashton Street has disappeared

  • I attended Ashton Street Primitive Methodist. It was at the Higher Ince part of Ince-in-Makerfield off Manchester Road. It was still open in 1968 but closed shortly afterwards.
