Drawing of the Swaffham Primitive Methodist Chapel in 1877

The Primitive Methodist magazine records the re-opening of Swaffham Primitive Methodist chapel in 1837. The chapel had been enlarged and a new gallery added.

Re-opening services started on August 20th 1837.  They were conducted by Bros J Walker, W Kirby & Rev J Hewit (baptist minister).  Brother Kirby submitted the account to the magazine.

Swaffham was the head of a circuit – go to the circuit plans pages to see the other societies in the circuit.

A replacement chapel was built in 1877

The 1884 Ordnance Survey map shows a Primitive Methodist chapel on the western side of Lynn Street, opposite the Horse and Groom pub.  Does the building still exist?
