Nibthwaite Mills Primitive Methodist preaching room

Ulverston station

The Primitive Methodist magazine contains an account by Rev T Atkinson of the opening of a Primitive Methodist preaching room at Nibthwaite Mills .  It was opened on August 6th 1865. Speakers at the opening celebrations which included a public tea for 130 included Rev Atkinson,  G & W Rushforth, , Revs Taylor, Gordon,  and Wrathall.  The room was not just for preaching but “temperance meetings held, a Sabbath school taught, a library established, and it is expected a mutual improvement society will be formed.

Where was this chapel and what happened to it?
