The Primitive Methodist society in Station Road, Sheringham dates from 1840. It worshipped until 1966, when it joined with the society in Beeston Road to form St Andrew’s Methodist church. The Station Road property having serious roof problems was a key element in this decision.
The chapel was located on Station Road, at the junction with New Road. Street View from 2009 shows a replacement retail building on the site.
Raymond Ella has found a fascinating account of life in the chapel and the Fishermen Evangelists in the Henry Joyful West blog. It includes pictures of the chapel and you can read it here.
