When in 1903 the Bradshawgate Primitive Methodist chapel was purchased by Leigh Corporation as part of a development scheme, the Primitive Methodist society moved to new and larger chapel and school buildings in Windermere Road, at its junction with Leigh Road.

The chapel was demolished in 1969 and  buildings disappear from Ordnance Survey maps between 1961 and 1969/71.  An office block, used by Leigh Job Centre, was built on the site.

  • I’ve added a striking photograph of the setting of the former Primitive Methodist church, taken from the top of the parish church tower.
