Preston Eldon Street Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1901 November Primitive Methodist magazine records that an effort was being made to reduce  the debt that the Primitive Methodist society owed for its premises on Eldon Street. It was a valuable property, but at the time there was a large school operating on it.

We are told that “a large and splendid site for a new chapel constitutes part of the estate.” The writer hoped the society was strong enough to achieve its building.

The 1910 Ordnance Survey map shows a large school on Eldon Street, between Henderson Street and Lowndes Street.  Was that it? In 2020 it is still there as Eldon Primary School.

  • The school is the site of a Primitive Methodist Chapel, built in 1886, with another building of 1891/92; the church moved to a new building further along Eldon Street in 1932, and the former building is now the school.
    The new building closed c2006 and is now the site of a small housing estate, named Wesley Court.
