This building is situated on the old main street of Eastoft village. Most of the property on that side of the street has been demolished. In July 2012 the property was in very poor condition with considerable signs of damage through damp and neglect. In 2009 it was sold by the Methodist Church and the purchaser obtained planning permission to convert it into two dwellings. This was not done and on July 12th  2012 it came up for auction for the second time. The photo of the interior is as it was on that date.

  • This former PM Chapel and Sunday School is in between 2 roads, i.e., Yorkshireside Road and High Street.

    On the High Street side the stone plaques are viewable on a Google Sat Nav Map. 

    On the a wall on the other side of the building (seems to have had a new roof), i.e., Yorkshireside Road, there is what looks like a recent (perhaps year 2000) oval sign with wording ‘The Millennium is Christ’s 2000th Birthday, Worship him here -now..’. But, is it still there?.

  • Eastoft Chapel brings a lot of very happy memories back to me. I was assistant organist for many years, I was married to my wife Wendy in the Chapel, our three children were all christened their and my mum’s funeral service was held at the Chapel. I remember that the Rev. Molly Greenwood conducted all those services. It is sad to see the Chapel as it is now but the memories and the happiness that the Chapel brought to our family will always be there, long after the Chapel is no more.

  • My great grandad (George Holliday) was born in about 1850 in Eastoft to Primitive Methodist parents. He lived there for some time before moving to Scunthorpe and joining New Brumby where he was a local preacher, class leader and trustee until his death from TB in 1908. So it’s very likely this was his church once. Interesting.
