Hoxton Primitive Methodist chapel
Harvey Street and Philip Street
In the 1856 Primitive Methodist magazine, James Tite writes about the opening of Hoxton Primitive Methodist chapel in the London First circuit.
For a number of years the society had met in a room or a small chapel in Harvey-street. After a number of unsuccessful attempts, they secured Philip-street chapel , (now spelled Phillipp Street, N1 5PB) off Kingsland Road, previously belonging to the Established Church. “It is situated in the midst of a dense population, and there is no church or chapel very near it. “
The opening services for Philip Street chapel were commenced on Friday evening, June 6th, 1856, when the Rev. L. Herschell, Independent minister preached. Addresses at later meetings came from Rev. H. Cooke, of the Methodist New Connexion, Mr. D. Mossop Mr. E. Bishop, Rev. J. Spong, Independent minister, Mr. T. Church and Miss Rebecca Wilson.
The building is labelled as a chapel on the 1896 1:2,500 Ordnance Survey map, but by 1916 it is not labelled. The area was later comprehensively redeveloped.
