Keith Guyler 1996

The first chapel in East Stockwith was built 1819 and a larger one opened 1840.  The chapel in the photograph is the third East Stockwith Primitive Methodist chapel. It opened in 1870 when it seated  190 and had a schoolroom underneath. The 1870 chapel served until 1948. It’s opening was described  by JT Shepherd in the Primitive Methodist magazine. Opening preachers included Revs J Tongue, J R Parkinson, J Stephenson, C Spivey & C Leafe

At the time of the photograph the chapel was used for storage and derelict. On Google Street View in 2009 it is still in the same poor condition.

  • Although we have seen listings implying this Chapel was still in poor condition c.2015 we now know such a repeated listing is from information pre-2013-early 2014.
    There is a photo of the Chapel by J. Thomas on geograph website taken Sept., 2014, it with scaffolding for repairs or a conversion started.

    Ref. MLI86987: Photographs of the former PM Chapel. When one is enlarged the stone plaque can be read: ‘Primitive Methodist Chapel 1870’. 

    Still used for storage in 2015 and in poor condition.
