Forest Gate Primitive Methodist chapel

Cobbold Road,Leytonstone

The 1883 Primitive Methodist magazine tells us they had laid the foundation stones for  a new Primitive Methodist school/chapel at “a good freehold site” in  Cobbold Road, Forest Gate. The building would cost £700 of which they had raised £400.The site was large enough to erect a chapel later on.

They had previously met in a tent and then in a house in Cobbold Road. Cobbold Road is now much truncated and I can see no sign of a chapel on contemporary Ordnance Survey maps.
