Liverpool Princes Avenue (Road) Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1885 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for a new Liverpool Primitive Methodist chapel at what it calls Princes Road, but is generally referred to elsewhere as Princes Avenue. It replaced the former chapel in Rathbone Street.

The society had acquired a site some years previously but could only afford to build a lecture hall and classrooms,  Now they had started work on the chapel. It would hold 900 and cost £3,500.   William  Hartley, “with his characteristic generosity” offered to give an extra 10% on all the society raised. You can read some of the background here.

THe 1886 magazine tells us that the chapel had been completed

The 1908 Ordnance Survey map shows a chapel at the junction of Beaconsfield Street and Princes Avenue; it is labelled as Primitive Methodist on the 1928 map. There is a modern chapel on the site in 2019
