Winterton is in North Lincolnshire, to the north of Scunthorpe and south of the Humber.

The area was missioned by the Primitives from 1820 onwards. The Primitives built an 1820 chapel, succeeded by a second 1838 chapel. The Queen Street Primitive Methodist chapel was opened on the same site as the previous chapel in 1880, building having began the year before, to seat 550. It closed in 1962 and has since been demolished.

The continuing Methodist society worships at the Trinity Methodist church, on another site.

Winterton was a centre of Primitive Methodist activity in this area of North Lincolnshire

  • The Primitive Methodist magazine for December 1880 (page 761) records the opening of Winterton Primitive Methodist chapel. It contains very little detail, except to say that it was a “beautiful and commodious” new chapel and schoolroom with vestries. It had cost £1,500.
