Lincoln Newport Primitive Methodist chapel

The 1850 Primitive Methodist magazine contains an account by James Hurd of the opening of a new Primitive Methodist chapel in Newport, Lincoln.

The chapel opened on April 7th 1850  with services from 7:00 in the morning and a public tea for 400 in the Corn Exchange. Preachers included J Lawley of Market Rasen, Miss Buck of Leicester,  Langford, Price and Mr Medcalf (Independent),  The Sunday evening service in the Corn Exchange was attended by 2,000 people.

The new building measured 30′ square and 14 high to the ceiling and cost around £220 of which they had raised £93/15/-.  There was also room to expand in the future if needed.

Donors and collectors included Messrs Langford, Burley and Warrener.

I cannot see the chapel on Ordnance Survey maps of the time.  Where was it and what happened to it and its people?
