  • Thanks for identifying this source Peter. I had missed it as in my list Benington is spelled Bennington! Bro Gilbert tells us that the chapel opened on 30th September 1838, and preachers at the opening festivities included Bro Beckerlegge and Miss Moseley as well as Jeremiah Gilbert .

    Primitive Methodists had preached in Benington for more than 10 years. In February 1838 Mr Gilbert asked Mr.& Mrs. Needham if they could give 100 square yards to build a chapel. They could not but would pay for the same if the society could obtain the required land. Mr Wright obliged with the land and the Mr Needham duly paid for it.
