Sutton Bridge Primitive Methodist chapel (known as the Independent) was erected on the corner of Allenby’s Chase in 1855. The building in the photograph dates from 1888 and is, I believe, the Sunday school of the former Primitive Methodist chapel. At the time of Keith Guyler’s photograph in 1993  it was empty and for sale.  

The chapel itself was demolished and a small cluster of terrace houses was built on the land behind it.

On Google Street View the Sunday school building is still there and appears to be in use as a house.

  • Lincolnshire Archives, Lincoln:

    Ref. MLI97768: Photographs of PM Chapel, Sutton Bridge, now a private home, to include plaque: ‘1888, Primitive Methodist’ .

    The word Chapel not included because it was the PM Sunday School.

  • The photograph of the 1855 chapel (included above as you cannot add a photograph in a comment) comes from the website of Bridge Watch Sutton Bridge [and can be found at http://www.bridgewatch.org.uk/town.html#churches] where it is also noted that the schoolroom was built in 1880. The website also comments, rather erroneously, that “the title ‘Primitive Methodist’ was usually given to Methodist lay preachers (non-ordained), so the chapel on the corner of Allenby’s Chase would have been the place where the Methodist laity could preach.”
