Rochdale (Jarvis Street) Primitive Methodist Chapel

This chapel was built in 1887

This is a large brick built chapel with a tower. It is in the middle of a residential area. Date of closure is unknown.

In 2016 it advertises itself as being ‘Auto Spares’ – car parts and accessories but there is little indication that this business is still being conducted from these premises.
