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.
