Frieston Shore Primitive Methodist chapel

a gentleman bather paid for the land

The 1839 Primitive Methodist magazine includes an account by Jeremiah Gilbert of the opening of Frieston Shore Primitive Methodist chapel in the Boston circuit.

The new chapel which measured 21′(l) x 18′(w) was opened on August 12 1838 and opening preachers included J Gilbert, T Worrill, W Leeke, J Richards and T Tennant . Mr Handley MP gave a sovereign as did William Simpson , a pious fisherman. Mr Bates , a gentleman bather, paid for the land and influenced others to give.

The new society had 13 members.

I cannot find a Primitive Methodist chapel in Frieston Shore on late Nineteenth Century Ordnance Survey maps available to me. Where was it and what happened to the society?
