Morecambe Parliament Street Primitive Methodist chapel

Ordnance Survey maps from 1913 show a Primitive Methodist chapel  in Morecambe West End at the junction of West Street and Parliament Street – where there is a children’s playground on Street View  in 2009 and 2016.

The previous 1891 map shows the site as undeveloped – indeed neither Parliament Street nor West Street extend as far as the location of the chapel, so the chapel was built at the end of the Nineteenth century.  Lancashire Archives has records from 1898.

That said, Philip Thornborow tells us that Parliament Street, Morecambe, was built in 1931, according to the 1970 Statistical Returns . Gen UK simply dates it as before 1927.

  • The foundation stone of this building was laid by my paternal ancestors, the Crabtrees and the Nelsons, both families originally came from Bradford, but moved to Morecambe in the late 19th century.
