Laceby Caistor Road Primitive Methodist chapel
Caistor Road, Laceby DN37 7HZ
Laceby Primitive Methodist society dates from 1837. A chapel measuring 36′ x 23′ was opened in 1838 when the society paid £21 for 100 sq.yards. Thanks were due to Mr Robert Markham for his unwearied exertions. Opening speakers included Messrs King, Speed, Knowles & FN Jersey, who described the opening in the Primitive Methodist magazine. Does the building still exist?
The Caistor Road chapel in the picture was built in 1877 and served until 1955.
The attendance at Primitive Methodist services in Laceby on Sunday 30th March 1851 was morning service 40, afternoon service 60, evening service 100.
After closure it became a Youth Centre. Google Street View in 2010 shows it as the Scout HQ.
