Preston Fylde Road Primitive Methodist chapel

Preston Fylde Road Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1894 Primitive Methodist magazine records that the iron chapel that had been the home of the Primitive Methodist society at Fylde Road was being replaced by a “new and substantial” Chapel. It was in the Preston Second station.

The 1909 Ordnance Survey map shows a large Primitive Methodist chapel on the west side of Fylde Road, just south of its junction with Victoria Street/Greenbank Street, next to The Guild pub.  The chapel has a large Sunday school behind it.

The 1892 Ordnance Survey map shows a chapel on the rear of the site, in the position later occupied by the Sunday School. It is still there, labelled as Fylde Road Methodist church in the 1972-1988 series of maps but does not appear on Street View.
