The 1822 Loughborough plan in Rev Kendall’s history of the PM connexion shows two services at Sheepshead (sic) each Sunday at 2.00 and 6.00 pm.  There was a chapel In Charnwood Road in 1876 and the present building, which was built in front of the previous chapel, dates from 1913.  It closed in 1969 and was used for some years as Knight’s printers and then a cannabis factory.  In April 2014 it is an indoor play centre. 

You can read about the story of Shepshed’s current Christchurch Methodist church, together with a detailed account of the Primitive Methodist chapel, by following this link. The accompanying booklet tells the story through the stones inscribed on the building.
