Southport Russell Road Primitive Methodist Chapel Lancashire
The building was opened in April 1892
Before 1892 the Russell Road area of Southport had United, Independent and Wesleyan Methodist chapels. The ‘Prims’ were not content with this and decided to build their own. In 1887 a Mission Hall was erected and in 1892 the present chapel was built in front of it and incorporating it into the structure. A stone in the building has a date of 1900? In 2015 the Mission Hall can be identified by the change in the brick work. The more recent part of the chapel was built of Accrington brick and cost £1000. It is the only Methodist chapel remaining in the area but in 2015 it is not known if it is still open for worship.
