West Ferry Primitive Methodist chapel
Scotter Circuit, Lincolnshire
The Primitive Methodist magazine for March 1851 includes an account by Enoch Lee of the re-opening of West Ferry Primitive Methodist chapel in the Scotter Circuit on the 8th September 1850.
The first small chapel in West Ferry opened in 1823 – and such was the newness of the society, it was specifically designed to be easy to convert into a cottage should the enterprise fail. It didn’t fail, and the chapel was enlarged in 1838 and then further lengthened in 1850. It was then 45′ x 28′ with a circular gallery. The cost of the enlargement was £200.
I’m not able to track down where the chapel was – or even locate West Ferry. Can anyone help?
