  • I’ve added a transcript of the return from the Primitive Methodist preaching place in Springside, Rawtenstall to the 1851 Census of Places of Public Religious worship. The return was completed by James Fell, the steward.

    The preaching place in Springside preceded Jubilee chapel which consequently questions the 1850 date for Jubilee chapel opening. The Rossendale Family History Society site tells more of the story and gives an opening date of 1861. You can read it here:
