Potter Heigham Primitive Methodist chapel

The opening of Potter Heigham Primitive Methodist chapel is set out in the 1864 Primitive Methodist magazine.  I cannot find this chapel on Old Ordnance Survey maps.  Where was it and what happened to it?

Chapel Opening, Potter Heigham, Yarmouth Station.—In June last Mr. Edward Addy kindly gave us a piece of land here on which to build a chapel ; a better site we could not have found in the village. His very generous offer was thankfully accepted, and having secured the land to the Connexion, we proceeded at once to build.

The chapel is 30 feet by 19 inside, and 15 feet from the floor to the ceiling. It is built with good red bricks, the walls are stuccoed and well lined inside. The floor is boarded. There are 16 panelled backed seats, and 8 free seats, and a good platform ; the chapel is lighted with 6 windows 2 feet 10 inches by 6 feet G inches.

The work is well finished, and the seats are all let. The opening services commenced on the last Sabbath of October, and closed on the 4th of November. The sermons were preached by the Revs. J. Winkfield, E. Blake, Mr. M. Kerrison, and Mrs. Winkfield. The amount collected is expected to be above £60, the cost about £130. We have now a good Sabbath school, a working church, and a good prospect for the future. E. Blare.”
