There’s an account by D Tuton in the 1866 Primitive Methodist magazine of the foundation stone laying at Summit Primitive Methodist chapel. The society had met and run a Sunday school for 30 years “in a room fitted out for the purpose”. The new chapel was designed to hold 300 with a schoolroom underneath for 300. It would cost £700.

The foundation stone was laid by Miss Bottomly (Ramsden Wood). Speakers included Rev J Graham, Rev J Macpherson, John Titlow, J Crompton, EA Davies, J Travis, J Hall and  D Tuton.

The chapel was located at the junction of Holt Street and Todmorden Road.

There’s an early Twentieth Century view on this page.

  • On Wednesday 17th Sept I was stood outside the chapel at Summit debating whether to take a picture, I couldn’t get a good angle so I left it. It is uploaded the same day, what are the odds on that!
