Grimsby Victoria Street Primitive Methodist chapel

Victoria Street Primitive Methodist chapel in Grimsby was opened in 1857 with Hugh Campbell as the minister.  “He had much opposition, but after hard work he succeeded.  It is fragrant with memories that only few chapels have.  Such scenes were witnessed years ago that make to some of us every brick in the place precious.”

The chapel was located on the eastern side of Victoria Street South, between Havelock Street and Grime Street. The Sunday school opened onto Upper Burgess Street. The whole area has been redeveloped.

We are told of the improvement of the chapel in the 1865 Primitive Methodist magazine:

Grimsby Chapel.—The Victoria Street chapel, Grimsby, has just been renovated and painted. The reopening services took place September 26th, 26th, and 27th. Three excellent sermons were preached— two on the Lord’s-day and one on the Monday, by the Rev. J. Ashworth, of Peterborough, and the Rev. C. Carter delivered an eloquent discourse on Sunday afternoon. On Tuesday a tea-meeting was held in the new. Town Hall. About 800 persons drank tea on the occasion. In the evening a public-meeting was held in the chapel. The collections, donations, and tea will produce about £70. The re opening services were most auspicious, and crowned with the conversion of two or three souls. J. Mules.”
