Thornton Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1879 Primitive Methodist magazine records  the laying of the foundation stones for a new Primitive Methodist school at Thornton in the Fleetwood circuit. The Thornton Methodist church website tells us that :

“The Primitive Methodist Chapel, Fleetwood Road, opened at 2.30 p.m. on Good Friday (11th April, 1879). The building could comfortably seat 150 persons. … … the Primitive Methodists too began to flourish with increased congregations, and a larger number of Sunday School Scholars. In 1904 they built a new chapel at a cost of £1,000.”

Both chapels still stand at the junction of Fleetwood Road and Trunnah Road.  The chapels are now redeveloped for used as offices.
